Russian Telegraph

Russian Telegraph ensemble takes it’s name from two of San Francisco’s 47 hills. We mix the compositions of David James, Beth Custer, and Jordan Glasgow with rollicking covers like ‘Hey’ by the Pixies and Black Hole Sun of Soundgarden. Members comprise Oakland/San Francisco’s A-list musicians mixing the funk and soul of Curtis Bumpy, the diverse songs of the Beth Custer Ensemble, and the worldly compositions of David James’s GPS.

Chris Grady – trumpet
