    Kelan Phil Cohran is a musician known most for his trumpet contributions in the Sun Ra Arkestra in Chicago during 1959-1961 and for his involvement in the foundation of the AACM. In the late 60's, Cohran formed the Artistic Heritage Ensemble with Pete Cosey, future members of the Earth, Wind and Fire horn section and "Master" Henry Gibson (the Motown house percussionist) among others. By this time, he was playing the harp as well as cornet, as well as other brass instruments, such as the french horn, baritone saxophone and percussion. On the Beach is an available recording which documents their music around 1967-68. Early in his career he invented an instrument he calls the Frankiphone, aka the Space Harp heard on some of Sun Ra's early albums. The instrument is an electrified mbira or kalimba. This instrument inspired Maurice White to use an electrified Kalimba in performance with Earth, Wind and Fire.
    Hypnotic Brass Ensemble is a 9-piece, Chicago-based brass group featuring 8 sons of Phil Cohran on horns.
    Originally from Chicago, the brothers started as a street ensemble before recording in 2004. They have performed with Mos Def, Aquilla Sadalla, Phil Cohran, The Recipe, Nomadic Massive and at the North Sea Jazz Festival. In late 2007 they recorded with Erykah Badu and Maxwell.
    The sons:
    Gabriel Hubert ("Hudah") - trumpet
    Saiph Graves ("Cid") - trombone
    Tycho Cohran ("LT") - sousaphone
    Amal Baji Hubert ("Baji" or "June Body") - trumpet
    Jafar Baji Graves ("Yosh") - trumpet
    Seba Graves ("Clef") - trombone
    Tarik Graves ("Smoov") - trumpet
    Uttama Hubert ("Rocco") - baritone
    The 9th member:
    Christopher Anderson ("360") - drums
