EDITORS’ NOTES

Bassist Kyle Eastwood, son of longtime jazz advocate Clint Eastwood, plays like someone with the music in his blood. Based in Paris, he fronts a quintet of fiery British musicians, including trumpeter Quentin Collins, saxophonist Brandon Allen, and pianist Andrew McCormack. Saxophonist Stefano di Battista guests on four tracks, including Ennio Morricone’s surpassingly melodic “Cinema Paradiso (Love Theme).” A gritty, soulfully swinging mood prevails, not least on “Rockin’ Ronnie’s” and the Count Basie gem “Blues in Hoss’ Flat.”
