Sask Jazz Festival: Hypnotic Brass Ensemble at Capitol Music Club
June 25, 2015 @ 8:00 pm
Returning to the Festival, the eight strong cohort of horn playing brothers (plus one unrelated drummer) make up the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. Taking their stylistic cues from jazz, funk, hip-hop, and various strains of world music, they started out playing on the streets of Chicago and New York selling their self-released albums and growing a loyal following. All sons of Phil Cohran, co-founder of AACM and mentor to Earth, Wind and Fire, the brothers grew up on the south side of Chicago under the rigorous training methods of their parents.
