Kyle Eastwood: love of jazz comes from parents
With such a well-known father, he might have chosen a career in the movies. But Kyle Eastwood chose instead to become a musician.

He's now a respected jazz bassist, composer and arranger. And he even collaborated with his father on the music for the Oscar-winning Mystic River a couple of years ago.

  • Breakfast talked live to Kyle Eastwood.

    Although he decided not to follow his father into the movies, he hasn't turned his back on his heritage.

    "I got my first taste of jazz from my father and mother: they were big fans of jazz," he told Bill and Natasha.

  • Kyle Eastwood's latest album, Paris Blue, is released Candid Records (home to Jamie Cullum) on November 8th
