'Tonight Show' Guitarist Kevin Eubanks

Ed Gordon talks with jazz guitarist Kevin Eubanks. Besides heading the band on Jay Leno's Tonight Show, Eubanks has a successful jazz career of his own.

The guitarist has been playing jazz since he was a teenager, and toured for many years before Leno gave him the nod. He's earned several honors in the jazz world.

Most recently, he's been invited to host this weekend's Playboy Jazz Festival in Los Angeles. For Eubanks, it's just the latest achievement in his rich musical career.
