This week, Ira spoke with Kevin Eubanks.
Kevin Eubanks, who performs (along with Stanley Jordan) in Cabaret Jazz at the Smith Center, February 22-23, is a gifted musician, prolific composer, and winner of the BMI Classic Theme Composer Award. Kevin is also well known as the Music Director of The “Tonight Show” Band, appearing on the show 18 years (1992 – 2010).
Kevin, a consummate guitarist, has won over audiences with a laid back style and affability that have made him a household word. His CD, ZEN FOOD (released November 22, 2010 on Mack Avenue Records) debuted in the Top Five on the Billboard Jazz Chart and is Kevin’s fastest selling record ever. His new CD is called “The Messenger.”
Kevin and his touring band, which features Marvin “Smitty” Smith, Bill Pierce (who holds the Woodwind chair at Berklee College of Music), and Rene Comacho, continue to travel the country on tour.
