Phil Cohran (of AACM and Sun Ra, get with it) is jazz and he has 8 sons that are also probably jazz.
The 8 sons play as Hypnotic Brass Ensemble free tonight at Taste of Chicago in Grant Park. Here's hoping going downtown isn't a shit show.
FREE YA'LLS. 6:30. Grant Park.

From the Bud Light Website:
• The Bud Light Stage has its own monster offering in Chicago's Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. This octet from the South Side will be one of the hardest-hitting outfits at the fest, yet with not a distortion pedal in sight. It is brass, fueled by beats that bump with a fury that has attracted the attention of hip-hoppers such as De La Soul and Mos Def. A simple characterization for what Hypnotic does would be precision, verging on martial, dipped in the funk. Technique is such that you don't get those weird weak notes and quavers that plague many a lesser brass outfit. These brothers storm in like a contemporary legacy of that great jazz classic, "Blowin in From Chicago." An essential set. 6:30 p.m., Bud Light Stage; free
