The Beth Custer Ensemble
© 2005 BC Records | BC 7
A funky disk of political tirades such as Empire of the United States, rollicking, hip-slapping songs like High Sense of Adventure and Swim!, narrative twisters like General of Godeus and Breakneck, this album features Custer’s latest songs and some gems from David James. The ensemble is a veritable crème de la crème of Bay Area musicians including long time collaborator Jan Jackson on drums, Sila, Coup and Spearhead guitarist David James, iconic pianist Graham Connah, bassists Tennessee transplant Scott Alexander and the highly sought after Devin Hoff, Charming Hostess Marika Hughes on hot ‘cello licks, and a horn section to die for in Ralph Carney, Ben Goldberg and Marty Wehner. The incredibly talented trombonist for Santana and long time Custer collaborator Jeff Cressman recorded, mixed, and mastered the disk.
