Jeremy Mage and The Magi´s debut album filled with unpredictable songs
After half a million miles of inspiration on the road, Grammy winning multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Mage brings home a debut album of intimate, funky, and unpredictable songs.Mage played B-3 organ in gospel church and broke his nose in a mosh pit, and then years later he broke it again on a Steinway grand piano. In between, he studied with Baba Olatunji, Alan Ginsberg, James Hurt, Fred Frith, Yusef Lateef, Srinivasan in Varanasi, and Pupy Pedroso in Havana. He toured from Istanbul to Antigua with soul jazz artist Lizz Wright, afro beat queen Wunmi, and dub crew theEasy Star All Stars. The Magi , featuring musicians from Ghana, California, Brasil, and New York, (and even a background vocal cameo from Reggie Watts) weave an apocalyptic, hopeful set.
