I finally saw the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble playing again in the subway station at Union Square. This group is so amazing to see playing live, they make my spirit soar every time I see them… I bought another cd from them after shooting a few pictures- all their songs are original. Check out this video about them, they moved to NYC from the south side of Chicago. Every song draws a crowd and people look around at eachother with the biggest grins– the spontaneous enjoyment of street musicians is truly one of my favorite NYC experiences… this group is one of the most unbeleivable I’ve ever seen.
See the NY Times piece about them here on youtube:
