Why did Kevin Eubanks leave The Tonight Show With Jay Leno? What’s he doing now?
—Darlene Young, Cocolalla, Idaho

Eubanks, 53, parted ways with Leno after 18 years last year because, he says, “I felt like I wanted to play some more music and travel around the world again and see some things I missed seeing. It had nothing at all to do with not enjoying what I was doing.” In November, the jazz guitarist released his latest CD, Zen Food, and he is set to play April 8 at New Jersey’s Cape May Jazz Festival.
