The stratospheric brass blood brothers in London’s iconic venue…

Soundcrash and Jazz Cafe are extremely happy to announce that Hypnotic Jazz Ensemble will be bringing their unique high octane brass sound to London.

The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble is a family band consisting of 7 blood brothers trained in musical instrumentation since the tender ages of 4 & 5 by their father, jazz trumpeter/band leader Kelan Phil Cohran (EARTH, WIND, & FIRE. CHAKA KHAN. SUN RA) who subsequently formed the PHIL COHRAN YOUTH ENSEMBLE (1990) composed of his children that had now become proficient in their musical presentation. The family toured the United States performing the complex original written jazz compositions of Cohran and other greats such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, even classical Bach & Beethoven. Although the group’s early musical training encompassed primarily elements of instrumental performance, the brothers were personally being exposed to the music of their own generation (hip-hop, rock, reggae to name a few) and absorbed these components into the cosmic jazz style of their father. By 1999, the band of brothers discontinued playing with their dad in order to find their own sound and started going under the name of Hypnotic Brass Ensemble.

Since then they have collaborated the like of Gorillaz, performed with Prince and provided music for blockbusters such as The Hunger Games. They are renowned for spellbinding live performances and virtuosic instrumental talent.
