Cat.No: CCD79856 Format: CD

Barcode: 708857985623 Label : CANDID Genre: JAZZ Bassist and composer Ky le Eastwood’s most eclectic album y et featuring Till Brönner, Eric Legnini, Manu Katche and Camille.

Ky le Eastwood’s Metropolitain is his third album to be released on the Candid label

UK dates to support album release

Aiming to stay true to his roots as a liv e musician Ky le set out with this record to capture the sound which his band has toured all ov er the world. Along with producer and long time collaborator Michael Stev ens (with whom he has written film scores for block busters such as Changeling and Gran Tarino), Ky le was eager to mak e a record which had an energy and spirit all of it’s own. To achiev e this Ky le and Michael sought the help of Erin Dav is (son of the legendary Miles) who came on board to co-produce the album. Metropolitain was recorded liv e in the back streets of Paris at Studio Feber, a tiny , wood-panelled studio suggested to Ky le by guest pianist on the album Eric Legnini. Ky le splits his time between Paris and LA but Paris seemed an appropriate spiritual home for this project. Perhaps because it gav e Ky le access to such an incredible batch of top quality musicians. As well as Legnini the album sees collaborations with cutting edge French pop v ocalist Camille, German trumpet superstar Till Brönner and French drummer and current trailblazer Manu Katché.

Recently, in the fall of 2008 he toured the world as part of Herbie Hancock's famous band. Kendrick's powerful, illuminating drum work has graced a number of memorable Criss Cross CDs, by Danny Grissett, (Promise, Encounters), Walt Weiskopf (Day In Night Out), Mike Moreno (Third Wish) and Lage Lund (Early Songs).
