de Clive-Lowe is a major developer of the broken beat scene that blended cutting-edge electronics, classic funk, and percussion-heavy global influences with a distinctly jazz-inspired approach. He has collaborated with Lauren Hill, Kamasi Washington, Eric Harland, Sheila E, Jody Watley, Hiatus Kaiyote, bass virtuoso Pino Palladino, SFJAZZ Collective trombonist Robin Eubanks and dozens more, contributing to over 300 releases while releasing 18 full-length albums and a half-dozen EPs under his own name. His latest release, Live at the Blue Whale, documents a Los Angeles performance that pays tribute to jazz icons Yusef Lateef, Sun Ra, and Ahmad Jamal — three of de Clive-Lowe’s biggest inspirations.
