KYLE EASTWOOD / STEFANO DI BATTISTA “GRAN TORINO”

Kyle Eastwood, double bass, electric bass

A Torino Jazz Festival Production

Clint Eastwood’s eldest son Kyle has always shared his father’s passion for Afro-American music, and has engaged in in-depth studies of the various genres it comprises.
He began his recording career in the late 1990s, while at the same time creating soundtracks for his father’s films – among them, Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby and Invictus. This performance brings to life the music from the Clint Eastwood classic Gran Torino, for which Kyle collaborated on the film’s original soundtrack. He’ll be teamed up with virtuoso Italian saxophonist Stefano Di Battista.

EIVIND AARSET QUARTET

Exclusive performance: sole Italian date

Eivind Aarset, guitar, electronics
Audun Erlien, bass
Erland Dahlen, drums, percussion
Wetle Holte, drums, percussion, keyboards

In conjunction with the Norwegian Embassy in Rome

Eivind Aarset of Norway began playing guitar after he first heard Jimi Hendrix, and thanks to his brother’s influence, he went on to discover electrified jazz and the ECM sound of Jan Garbarek and Terje Rypdal. The New York Times compared his solo debut to none other than Miles Davis’s brand of electrified jazz, so it’s little wonder that Aarset is considered one of the hottest guitarists on the scene today. Aarset has also worked with acclaimed artists such as Jon Hassell, Laurie Anderson, Bill Laswell, and Sly & Robbie. For years he has been a mainstay of Norwegian trumpeter Nils Petter Molvaer’s band, which thrilled the audience at last year’s Torino Jazz Festival. This time around, he brings his own band to Torino, promising an evening of hypnotic grooves and all-new soundscapes that make use of adventurous displays of high-tech, giving each soloist the freedom to go off on their own incredible tangents.
