Agora é a parte psicadélica

When your dad is a well-regarded jazz trumpeter, it's perhaps inevitable that you'll follow in his footsteps. A decade ago, the eight sons of Sun Ra Arkestra member Phlip Cohran did just that, forming The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. Here they hook up with their inspirational dad for a first collaborative album for Honest Jon's. In typical fashion, they've taken his influences and playing style as the starting point. So, alongside their usual rousing marching funk, we get treated to a string of more experimental compositions. It's these - particularly the emotional strings and cinematic builds of "Ancestral", or the 15-minute space-brass opus "Zincali" - that really stand out.
