Kelan Phil Cohran and The Legacy of Sun Ra: Thursday, August 14, 2008
Composer, pianist and poet Sun Ra's cosmic philosophy, rooted in the swing music of Fletcher Henderson led many to experiment with connecting new and old jazz traditions. Former Sun Ra band member, trumpeter, educator, composer and fellow shaman Kelan Phil Cohran continues to redefine this music. Cohran's ensemble of instrumentalists, vocalists and dancers join his sons' Hypnotic Brass Ensemble to celebrate the revolutionary tradition of Chicago's creative music. Robert Irving III directs and performs on piano.
