Each week we will be writing about the various aspects of jazz, one of the most important and influential musical idioms to come out of the 20th century. The blog will present a comprehensive look inside the music.
LOCATION: Dirty Dog Jazz Cafe 97 Kercheval, Grosse Pointe, MI 48236
DESCRIPTION Today, Kyle Eastwood is less and less known as the son of Clint Eastwood and more of a universally respected musician and leader in his own right. A virtuoso bassist on electric and upright, as well as a talented composer with a keen ear for great tunes as well as the subtleties of modern jazz, he is right at the forefront of the contemporary scene, having chosen to immerse himself in the music he loves. Dynamic and pulsing, full of swing, great rhythms and memorable melodies, Songs From The Chateau is Eastwoodâ€™s fourth US effort on Rendezvous Music (licensed from Candid Recordsâ€”one of the leading independent jazz labels in the UK). With this new album Eastwood set out to capture the sounds and energy with which his band regularly tours the world to sellout crowds.
Located on 'The Hill' in Grosse Pointe Farms, the Dirty Dog Jazz Cafe presents live jazz and fine dinning in an intimate, ole English pub atmosphere. The venue offers great food and music Tuesday through Saturday: Call 313-882-5299 for reservations. Chef Andre Neimanis serves up bistro favorites, world cuisine influences, comfort food with a twist and exciting daily specials. The wine list offers about 60 selections, 20 by the glass.
