“Heritage is the idea of transmitting from the past to the future,” says Mark Clive de Lowe of his inspiration for his new album, the appropriately titled Heritage. “It’s about identity and one’s place in the world.”
Out on February 8 through Southbound on Ropeadope/Mashibeats, Heritage is the 18th album from the Los Angeles based pianist and electronics wizard and is a deeply personal of his Japanese ancestry and cultural roots.
The LP was recorded live over three days at LA’s Blue Whale jazz club, as well as one day in a North Hollywood studios. de Clive-Lowe deliberately edited the material in a way to blur the line between the live and studio recordings.
