Quentin Collins

Trumpet - Flugelhorn / Composer - Arranger / Educator

Kyle Eastwood Band

 
 

A decade old partnership that delivers

The Kyle Eastwood Band has wowed audiences around the world, with its fresh, pulsating music performed by the quintet, which features Quentin Collins on trumpet and flugelhorn.

Their latest album, Time Pieces, has earned the artists international critical acclaim.

“This great ensemble I’m working with is designed like a true musical collective,” Eastwood adds. “I brought to the writing and recording sessions pieces of melodies and chord progressions, but most often the songs and their arrangements were crystallized in the studio during rehearsals. The association that I have with pianist Andrew McCormack and trumpeter Quentin Collins extends back almost 10 years now. It is a luxury to be able to develop a project on a long-term basis. That longevity is obviously reflected in the music we create. But if we’re the heart and soul of this quintet, the newer musicians’ ability to fit into our flow was equally important. Brandon Allen on saxophones and Ernesto Simpson on drums have truly enriched this album by opening our core sound to fresh and exciting new horizons.”
