Kyle Eastwood is back his new release The View From Here, a refreshing perspective in new age jazz, this album is classy and free flowing, the songs were written and executed well, the album is fun, the band has a great chemistry and the music is defining new age jazz, in jazz where there are many artists playing standards over the years it is refreshing to hear some new material that is witty and exciting and the view from here fits that bill, this album and the musicians in it dont force a thing it takes flight and doesnt stutter for a second and is one of the classiest albums ive heard in some time, kyle plays both upright and electric and mixes it up well

I love Kyle Eastwood's music, and this is another good CD. I have liked 3 of his previous CD's better, and they concentrate more on the music and the overall musicians. The only thing keeping from rating a 5th star is that I felt the trumpet was a little too pronounced and took away from the other musicians. However, great compositions, and very good musical arrangements.

The first few songs are very interesting because they all seem to set down a theme and then work from that theme with the musicians delving into other areas but always coming back to the original theme at the end. The other songs are more straigt ahead but still very engaging. I need t listen to the second half of the CD with a bit more criticaal ear and maybe I can add some additional comments. A very strong outing for this band and Kyle is playing well throughout.

Kyle Eastwood. The View From Here.
Why Kyle Eastwood is the featured performer on this album is a mystery, and I listened to this album a number of times, trying to find something nice to say about it. Most of the time, his bass playing is drowned out by the other instruments, and even his solos are sometimes so faint that he might as well be playing in the next room. Most of the songs concentrate on the other instruments in the group, and the bass is lost in the distance somewhere. Kyle needed to get his own microphone, or at least stand a lot closer to whatever working microphones were available. If his microphone was not working on some of these songs, the songs should have been done over when the microphone issue was resolved. Perhaps the recording engineers turned his microphone down for some reason. Who knows. We should have heard a loud bass being played front and center, leaving no doubt as to who the featured performer was. Kyle has talent, but it is sometimes hard to hear it on this album. The artsy cover photo of him looking down at his shoes, or something he stepped in (the view from here), gives the impression that he is hiding from the camera and not too enthusiastic about the music on the album. I gave this album a three star rating, and that was being generous. The best song on this album is "The Promise", a song that I heard on a late night jazz radio program. I bought the album based on that one song, and that turned out to be pretty much the highlight of the album. The rest of the cuts were rather monotonous and forgettable, nothing you would be able to name from memory if you heard them on the radio.
The songs in order, are: 1.) From Rio To Havana; 2.) For M.E.; 3.) The View From Here; 4.) Sirocco; 5.) Luxor; 6.) Une Nuit Au Senegal; 7.) The Way Home; 8.

Kyle Eastwood exhibits versatility and honesty through all this work. Outstanding arrangements, warm nuances and well chosen songs from a vast repertoire that embraces classic themes and soundtracks that work out like a glove.

A nice finding and probably one of the best twenty albums of this year. Don't miss it!!!
