Master Musician

(born in Mississippi in May 8, 1927) Phil Cohran is a jazz musician. He is 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. His tenure in the Sun Ra Arkestra is documented on records such as Fate in a Pleasant Mood and Angels and Demons at Play. He also appears on the important rediscovered documentation of Chicago Arkestra performances on Music for Tomorrow's World. While most of Cohran's contributions were on trumpet, some also show his interest in stringed instruments such as zithers.

 When the Arkestra moved from Chicago, Cohran declined to accompany them. In 1965 he participated in the formation of the AACM. Cohran formed the Artistic Heritage Ensemble. By this time, he was playing the harp as well as cornet and percussion. On the Beach is an available recording which documents their music around 1967-68.
