On January 25, 2013 history was made as Elton John’s performance from Disneyland’s Hyperion Theater “brought pianos to life” around the world thanks to DisklavierTV™ powered by RemoteLive™ technology. Sir Elton’s actual piano keystrokes were faithfully re-created, note for note, in real time on each of the remote instruments, while the entire 60-piece orchestra was seen and heard on adjacent monitors, in perfect sync with the remote piano performances. This groundbreaking performance was broadcast live to remote instruments in multiple countries including Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Japan and Australia. For a limited time only, you can relive this historic performance that was originally recorded and broadcast LIVE around the world on January 23, 2013 from Disneyland’s Hyperion Theater in Anaheim, CA.

Talented bassist—and son of famed actor-director Clint Eastwood—Kyle Eastwood has grown his career in the jazz scene since his debut in 1998 with his album From There To Here. With four subsequent album releases in the following years, Eastwood has produced an incredible body of work, and earned respect amongst other musicians in the genre. After living in Paris for the past eight years, adopting influences from North African and Middle Eastern music, his sixth and most recent release, The View From Here, expands into a more diverse collection of jazz and world influences, while demonstrating his strong command of both electric and upright basses. Accompanied by a London-based group of musicians—pianist Andrew McCormack, tenor saxophonist Graeme Blevins, trumpeter Quentin Collins and drummer Martyn Kaine—Eastwood and company delivers a stellar performance. This uncut, unedited performance is broadcast LIVE on March 14, 2014 from MIM in Phoenix, AZ. See it here.
