This is the collectors version, as you will notice from the artwork (designed by Third Culture from Spain), there is something new to be discovered each time its studied. Continuing the long legacy of pivotal albums by father-mentor Phil Cohran such as AFRICAN SKIES, ON THE BEACH, & MALCOLM X SUITE, and following up the most previous collaboration on "Motivation" with legendary rapper Snoop Dogg. A classic album for the collection, get it before they're gone!

2020 sees Hypnotic Brass Ensemble celebrating twenty years together not only as a band, but a Band of Brothers and they are marking this anniversary with the launch of their sixth studio album Bad Boys of Jazz, which sees them seamlessly weave funk, dub, hip-hop and soul into their own irrepressible take on jazz. They draw deep from the well of tradition while taking the pulse of the most cutting-edge and street-savvy sounds.
The Bad Boys Of Jazz album release marks a turning point in Hypnotic Brass Ensemble’s development. Trading their signature all brass sound, and adding an electric guitar and bass to their aptly vibrant horn lines, they’ve written 14 new tracks of sonic sorbet for this fresh album.
The energy and feel move seamlessly through genres – from Delta’s rock-infused distorted guitar to the house music rendition of In The House; from My Ship’s rhythm & blues inflection or the very soca feel of Soul on Ice to Indigo’s solid groove. There’s room left for the sing-along
tunes Coffee and Friends and this body of work flows comfortably into the very funky Menage.
The band has been at the forefront of the global jazz revival of the last decade, bringing the music back to its dance floor origins and along the way, legions of new fans hip to the fact that jazz runs through the DNA of nearly every strand of Afro American music. Jazz has always been
an evolving and innovative force in music, renewing itself by borrowing from whatever styles and fresh sounds come its way. The Hypnotics are past masters at this process of assimilation and innovation, blowing fresh sounds on the embers of tradition, keeping the flame lit. They call
their brand of music now music. Presented here is the fully Instrumental version of each track.
