Brothers Hypnotic

Dir. Reuben Atlas, 2013, 84 mins.

At 6:00 a.m. sharp, the numerous children of jazz musician Phil Cohran began band rehearsal. A family of 24 living on Chicago’s South Side, the “brothers” of the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble were raised by their father and three mothers on a strict diet of jazz, funk and Black Consciousness. In this award-winning film from the festivals including SXSW, Urbanworld and HotDocs, the band works with artists including Mos Def, Blur and Prince, while struggling to maintain their own identity and bring their distinctive blend of jazz, hip-hop, and funk from the halls from Europe to the streets of New York City.
