Bassist/composer Kyle Eastwood and his "American Quintet" - pianist Richard Germanson, trumpeter Alex Norris, saxophonist Jason Rigby and drummer Joe Strasser - are spending the coming weekend in Old Lyme. They will be the guests of Jan and Ken down at The Side Door Jazz Club. They'll also play 2 sets on Friday and Saturday, probably featuring the majority of pieces from Mr. Eastwood's 7th release as a leader, "Timepieces", released earlier this month on the Jazz Village?Harmonia Mundi label. He's an accomplished musician, composer and arranger, having scored films for both his father Clint and his sister Alison. He's got a crackerjack band of musicians and they play jazz with roots in the 1950s and 60s as well as more contemporary music. To find out more, go to www.kyleeastwood.com.
Doors open on both nights at 7:30 p.m. with the musicians "hitting" at 8:30. For tickets and more information about upcoming shows, call 860-434-0886 or go to thesidedoorjazz.com.

Mario Pavone needs no introduction to readers of this blog. The bassist has been an important member of the creative music scene for over 4 decades, continuing to grow as a musician and composer. For this show, he brings a group that includes Peter McEachern (trombone), Gary Buttery (tuba), Adam Matlock (accordion) and series curator/bassist Carl Testa. Chances are good the Quintet will play music from Mr. Pavone's latest Playscape release, "Street Songs", a collection of songs that relate back to the bassist's youth in Waterbury, CT (both Matlock and Testa are on that recording).
The music starts at 3 p.m. For more information, go to uncertaintymusic.com.
