FORWARD MOTION

"Guitarist David Eastlee, rather than merely copying the past or bringing back the old repertoire, on Forward Motion introduces seven new songs that bring bebop into the 21st century.

Reverse The Charges has such a catchy melody that it should become a standard.

On Forward Motion Sam Most leaves his flute in the case and sticks to his underrated cool-toned tenor-sax, adding to the appeal of this atmospheric set.

Like every top jazz musician, David Eastlee uses the best of the past to create new and enjoyable music."

Scott Yanow,
Author of nine jazz books including Jazz On Film, Trumpet Kings, Bebop and History Of Recorded Jazz 1917-76

LEFT COAST BLUES

"A fantastic debut from a fluid guitarist who clearly loves to swing, and achieves it on every track of Left Coast Blues.

The common Denominator is a sublime swing feel and Eastlee's boyant guitar tone. It is evident from the first note of Leapin' and Lopin' that Eastlee and company love to swing.

Eastlee weaves through each bop flavored progression with a crystal clear P-90 tone."
