Review :
A well-named group, and one with roots in the righteous Chicago jazz scene of the 70s -- given that most of the members are sons of the legendary Phil Cohran! The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble definitely live up to their moniker -- and play here with a beautifully-building sound on "Jupiter" -- one that uses tuba for the bass, trombones in the middle, and some well-stated trumpet lines on the top -- all to create a really magically flowing groove with no other non-brass instrumentation! "Balicky Bon" features just a bit of percussion, but still mostly horns -- and hits a vibe that reminds us of some of Lester Bowie's most imaginative moments -- but with a fuller, more soulful groove overall!
