The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble are a group of eight brothers whose father, trumpeter Phil Cohran, has been a leader in the Chicago jazz scene from the 1960s through today. Still performing today, Cohran was a teacher and composer for the Sun Ra Arkestra, Earth Wind & Fire, and Chaka Khan, and led the group Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM). He taught all of his children music from a young age, and Hypnotic, growing up on Chicago's South side, went on to combine the urgency of Hip Hop, the heritage of Jazz, and the soul of Chicago into a completely unique sound they call 'Now Music'.
Having performed together all of their lives Hypnotic's performances bring an unmatched level of energy and sophistication to the stage. They have been sought out for collaborations by some of the world's most popular musicians including Tony Allen, Femi Kuti, Gorillaz, Mos Def, Erykah Badu, De La Soul, and most recently, Prince.
