Magic In The Other
Magic In The Other
"This band is an intelligent music listener’s dream. The music is danceable but also worthy of focus to see their communication in real time...It is something special to bear witness to the birth of a band that could potentially take a scene by storm, you feel like you’re in on something – witness to something great...This band is worth your ears.." - Glide Magazine

Magic In The Other founder and leader Ezra Lipp has spent the last decade honing his craft as one of the most creative, versatile, and in-demand drummers in the Bay Area and beyond. He has performed all over the US and around the world with an impressive and diverse roster of bands and artists including the likes of Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh, Iranian counter-culture superstar Mohsen Namjoo, Folk-Soul troubadour Sean Hayes, and many others. In this long-overdue original project, Lipp has created a collaborative vehicle with which to express his unique musical sensibilities. Magic In The Other brings to life original compositions, presents creative twists on unexpected covers, and delves into unexplored musical territory only possible when communicating deeply with other fine musicians and a potent audience. Undoubtedly, the performance is also peppered with banter and antics reflecting Lipp’s unique brand of humor and creativity.

In the very first incarnation of Magic In The Other, Ezra Lipp has recruited a swift and nimble trio featuring the relentlessly groovy Steve Adams on the bass (ALO, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers) and innovative Oakland guitarist Roger Riedlbauer (Mercury Falls). The music indirectly borrows from many different influences and idioms: be it the rhythmic sophistication of Jazz and West African music, the energy and spirit of Rock N’ Roll, the movement based compositional format of Western Classical, or the improvisatory intensity of North India Ragas. However, it ultimately fuses many influences together to create something unique and refreshing. Magic In The Other attempts to deeply connect with the listener, creating a mentally stimulating, emotionally resonate, highly danceable, and distinctly transformative experience where everyone leaves feeling slightly more magical.
MITO is thrilled to be hosted at The Ivy Room this fall where they will be playing 6 shows between Oct-Dec with a different band every night!

Reed Mathis & Friends
Reed Mathis & Friends
Reed Mathis is an American composer, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist from Tulsa, Oklahoma. He is highly regarded for his innovative use of effected bass as well as his stylistic versatility. He records and tours with Tea Leaf Green, the Marco Benevento Trio, amongst other artists, and was a founding member of the Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, a group he co-led for fifteen years.

With his new Electric Beethoven project, Mathis did the unthinkable and fused all of his worlds together, bringing old world masterpieces by Beethoven to today's premiere musical improvisers — an elite class of live performers who have individually made names for themselves in every genre except classical: jazz, funk, folk, blues, and jam rock.
