On 'East West Time Line', guitarist Kevin Eubanks explores the chemistry he maintains with musicians on both coasts. Joining Eubanks on this stellar outing are the irrepressibly swinging Jeff "Tain" Watts, bassist Dave Holland, pianist Orrin Evans and trumpeter Nicholas Payton, drummer Marvin "Smitty" Smith and saxophonist Bill Pierce.
Once again, his distinctive finger-style approach to the instrument is in the service of tunes that run the stylist gamut from urgent swingers to introspective ballads to Latin-tinged numbers and some get-down Philly funk.
