Hypnotic Brass Ensemble: Documentary [trailer]

Trailer for upcoming documentary film Hypnotic which chronicles the band The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble.

New York-based jazz group featuring 8 sons of Phil Cohran on horns. Originally from Chicago, the brothers started as a street ensemble before recording in 2004.

I heard about the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble a few years ago when videos of their amazing sidewalk performances began cropping up on the internet. The sound was so beautiful, soaring, expansive, and harmonious, it was hard not to instantly fall in love. Since then they've gone from street performers to coveted guests on albums by Mos Def, Erykah Badu, and most recently on the Gorillaz record. They also released a couple of solo albums on Honest Johns.
