Hypnotic Brass Ensemble - Alyo / Flipside

(10") Honest Jon's Records HJP047, 2009-04-20

Written by Philip Cohran in memory of Alyo Tolbert, star dancer for the Montu Dance Company in Chicago, Alyo is the hardest, funkiest track from the imminent album (with Malcolm Catto from The Heliocentrics on drums); and in memory of the band's friend and rabblerouser, Flipside wobbles and woozes, tippy-toes and pirouettes, with Mingus in its bones.

Reviews :
Almost anyone who purchased the awesome Tony Allen remixes 12"s or compilation from Honest Jons last year will tell you that the best remix by far (well, maybe barring MvO's) was the blazing horns of Hypnotic Brass Ensemble's 'Losun' rework. We all fell under the spell of this tremendously joyful track and have been waiting with baited breath for new material, especially as everything they release just sells out immediately. Afforded their own beautiful 10" cut with full picture sleeve, the group, consisting of some 9 players on a variety of trumpets, trombones, baritones and Sousaphones deliver two tracks of beaming soul music at once connected to the space-jazz of Sun-Ra and equally the colourful melodic sequences and rhythms of Tony Allen. The comparisons to a High-school Brass band playing way beyond their level are intended with the upmost respect, but that's really what these tracks feel like, a youthfully exuberant and funky ensemble of brass and drums that would put a smile on anyone's mug. It's a an essential purchase - an another limited pressing that will no doubt last all of 5 minutes. Very good indeed. (Source : boomkat.com
