"Mr. Atlas delivers a rousing finale with a shiver-inducing studio session involving father and sons that's at once a glimpse at deeply felt family dynamics and a moving bridge across generations." --NY Times "Beautiful to behold" --LA Times "Brothers Hypnotic will restore your faith in humanity, bring a tear to your eye, a heavy stomp to your right foot and, possibly, make you curse your parents for not forcing you to wake up at the crack of dawn for tuba practice." --CBS "Lively, funny... philosophical... an intriguing microcosm of the tensions between the hip-hop generation and its civil-rights-era forebears." --Variety For the eight young men in the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, "brotherhood" is literal: they're all sons of anti-establishment jazz legend, Phil Cohran. Cohran and their mothers raised them together on Chicago's South Side on a strict diet of jazz, funk and Black Consciousness. Family band practice began at 6 AM. Now grown, as they raise eight brass horns to the sky, they make music that is at once indescribably joyful, unremittingly exciting, and undeniably together. But as the brothers try to make their own way in the wide world--while playing in the streets of New York City, collaborating with Mos Def, or wowing a jazz festival--they find the values their father bred into them constantly tested. They must decide whether his principles really are their own. This LP/DVD set includes a vinyl LP of unreleased Hypnotic Brass Ensemble music! Featuring: Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Gabriel Hubert, Saiph Graves, Amal Hubert, Tycho Cohran, Jafar Graves, Uttama Hubert, Seba Graves, Tarik Graves, Kelan Phillip Cohran, Aquilla Sadalla and MAIA With Appearances by: Christopher Anderson, The Naked Cowboy, Lily Koppel, Knox Robinson, Yasin Bey aka Mos Def, Mark Murphy, Emmanuel Harrold, Gabriel Wallace, Andrew McClean, Prince, Alan Scholefield, Damon Albarn, Tony Allen, Colin Murphy, Simon Tong and Abel Garibaldi
