Interview with Hypnotic Brass Ensemble

Artist: Hypnotic Brass Ensemble
Medium: Brass instruments (trumpet, trombone, souxaphone) with drumset

Hypnotic Brass hails from Chicago, props to the Midwest. The self proclaimed "hardest working band in the world", is composed of 8 brothers, all of whom learned to play instruments starting at the ages of 4 and 5 from their parents. They're father, Kelan Phil Cohran is their inspiration and is a successful muscician in his own right. Hypnotic Brass has played in virtually every major city in the US and has performed internationally.

I managed to snag an introduction to all the members:

Greetings to everyone in cyberspace & all other places you exist,
In the past 2 years Bro Kelan Phil Cohran has increased his visibility and music access throughout the world. As many of you know Bro Phil's contributions to musicology were overlooked for 40 + years. We want you to know there is moor rare music to come, moor movement, & expect moor as Bro Phil share's his enlightenment with the other visionaries throughout the world! Bro Phil turns 81 years old on May 8 that's almost 2 weeks for now...

Please heed this call from Sol Cyrans cuz we need your assistance...We gonna lyte a candle & blaze a fya on dis one! Vultures throughout the world are bootlegging Bro Phil's music or selling it without his permission. (This isn't a bad thing cuz it exposes more masses to the music...)

Then there are those people with expired contracts who continue to distribute his music throughout the world...(the ancestors will deal wif dem, they mite need more dan a prayer maybe a lil borax to cleanse dey azz)

Here's what we need from
1. Go to your local record store and purchase a copy of On The Beach either CD or LP....(the more this record is sold in stores the more we can keep track of these items)

2. share these youtube videos with someone you know!,,,

3. Keep Bloggin
