Clint Eastwood Part One

Jamie Cullum showcases his love for all types of jazz, and music rooted in jazz, from its heritage to the future.

The first of a two-part special in which Jamie visits Hollywood actor, director and producer Clint Eastwood at his production studio in LA, the place where he records the scores for his films.

Clint talks about the humorous side of jazz and how that has changed over the years, about the clubs he used to visit in his youth and about the legendary artists he would go to see perform, or even mingle with as well as his time in the army and the musicians he met there.

In a warm, personal interview, we see Clint Eastwood from a different angle, reunited with Jamie who he worked with on the soundtrack for Gran Torino, and talking passionately about the music he loves.
