On Book of Sound, their latest album, the group that made their name in scrappy performances on the sidewalks and street corners of New York City and Chicago turns muted, spare, warm and still. It is their first without drums on Honest Jon’s label, and it is also the group’s most open tribute to the legacy of their father, whose interest in Afrocentric philosophy and astral jazz runs like a river through American culture. Cohran passed in June of 2017, and Book Of Sound is, at its warmest and best, a living, breathing document of his philosophy

The album rings with what back in the 1950s the jazz critic Whitney Balliet called "the sound of surprise". With its cathedral-like, richly resonant acoustics, the new Hypnotic Brass Ensemble album Book Of Sound is a brilliant expression of this interplanetary principle. The album is by turns urgent and contemplative, funky and reflective, varied in its textures; but entirely of one piece.

Chicago eight-piece Hypnotic Brass Ensemble return with their first album in the best part of 10 years. Maturing with age, experience and decoration, they're even more rich, measured and magic than ever before. Our souls are arrested from the moment the slow spell-binding arpeggio of "Lead The Way" ignites the smouldering journey and the dreamy drama doesn't let up until the final whirling synth echoes of the finale track "Royalty"

The Chicago-rooted Hypnotic Brass Ensemble evokes that tradition but this electrifying group clearly has its own thing going on - eight of the members of this nine-piece drums-and-horns ensemble are sons of trumpeter Phil Cohran, who played with Sun Ra. The album kicks off with the rousing Alyo, a piece written by the elder Cohran. Funky tuba and drums back a great horn chart and chanting vocals, immediately establishing the album's high energy level
