JAE R X FRIENDS

hotep, and welcome to the JAE R blog…

XX PHIL COHRAN

Here’s a couple videos of Phil Cohran, who was a songwriter and trumpeter for Sun Ra. My father has played several shows with him and I got the opportunity to meet him on a few occasions and am blown entirely away every time I do. Cohran’s sons make up eight of the nine members of Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, a street ensemble consisting of brass and drums. Cohran is also a renowned astronomer and presently teaches voice and music to inner city youth and adults at Northeastern Illinois University’s Center for Inner City Studies.
