Brothers Hypnotic

by Reuben Atlas

The brotherhood of the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble is literal. Not-always-willing participants in an unorthodox upbringing, the eight boys were forged into a band as children by their father, Chicago jazz maverick Phil Cohran. Now as young men, making their way on the streets of New York and in the music business, with stardom on the horizon, they must test their father's ideals against their own brotherly vision.
