Kyle Eastwood - 'Now'

[Candid CCD 79845]

Third solo CD with guests including vocals from Ben Cullum (brother of Jamie) pianist Andrew McCormack, drummer Ralph Salmins, trumpeter Graeme Flowers and Dave O'Higgins on tenor saxophone respectively. It's the smoother side of jazz (I could do without the Sting cover) but it still has room to be funky and adventurous with some acid jazz and hip-hop influences adding to the mix, the playing is of course excellent.
