For the eight young men in the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, ‘brotherhood’ is literal: they’re all sons of anti-establishment Chicago jazz musician, Phil Cohran. They grew up in the same house, in a family of 24 siblings, on a strict diet of jazz, funk, and Black Consciousness. Family band practice began at 6 AM. Now grown, as they raise eight brass bells to the sky– whether playing in the streets of New York City, collaborating with Mos Def or Prince, or wowing Atlantic records– they find the values their father bred into them constantly tested. They must decide whether their fathers’ principles really are their own.
