Time to recognize: "Planet Gibbous" by Hypnotic Brass Ensemble! We have appreciated playing this thrilling and dynamic tune for many years, by the innovative Chicago-based, family-rooted ensemble whose re-inventions of brass music range from street performance to jazz.
Here is how they describe themselves on their website: "HBE are seven brothers from the south side of Chicago. Together they have toured throughout Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa and South America playing with everyone from Prince, Mos Def , Mick Jones (The Clash) and Damon Albarn (Blur, Gorillaz). They’ve performed Coachella, WOMAD AU, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Sydney Opera House and Carnegie Hall. The documentary film Brothers Hypnotic, explores their music, work ethic, life and experience of being raised by their jazz legend father Phil Cohran. After screening in major cities and festivals, it aired on PBS. Their song, 'War' was featured in the blockbuster hit movie, Hunger Games."
