Performer Notes
  • Geographically and genetically, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble has ties to the Chicago avant garde: the group's seven brass players are the children of trumpeter Phil Cochran, formerly of Sun Ra's Arkestra and a founding member of Chicago's Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians. But the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble's music has much more to do with the New Orleans contemporary brass band tradition as practiced by stalwarts like the Rebirth Brass Band. Sporting a bold brass line, bouncing tuba, and simple, funky percussion, Hypnotic channels the heritage of ceremonial brass band music through the 21st century, incorporating funk and hip-hop influences. The music is danceable, fun, and accessible, but also inventive in its conception and arrangements.
Professional Reviews
Q (Magazine) (p.124) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] thrilling distillation of their roots and influences: Duke Ellington's big band sound; charged Afrobeat; Cuban-flavoured marching jazz; block-rocking hip hop."
