Kevin Eubanks was born in Philadelphia in 1957, where his musical upbringing afforded him the opportunity to learn violin, trumpet, and piano in addition to guitar. After attending Berklee College of Music in Boston he moved to New York in 1980, and before long his guitar chops were attracting the attention of noted jazz musicians like Art Blakey, Roy Haynes, and Dave Holland. Eubanks made his recorded debut as a band leader in 1983 with the album Guitarist, and later that year he toured Jordan, Pakistan, and India as a goodwill ambassador of the U.S. State Department. Years of gigging and recording prepared him for his big break as a guitarist in The Tonight Show Band, which he joined in 1992. In just thirty six months he was promoted to band leader, and has since gone on to became a household name alongside host Jay Leno. Wanting to focus more on his own music, Eubanks amicably parted ways with the show in 2010 after 25 years of service. With the ability to pursue any project he desired, the guitarist issued his first album in 15 years, 2010ís Zen Food. Eubanks continues to impress audiences with his performance chops while captivating listeners with recorded material like Duets, his 2015 collaboration with fellow guitar virtuoso Stanley Jordan.
