About the Album

Jazz lovers who chose pianist Bill Anschell as "Northwest Instrumentalist of the Year" in 2005 will welcome his finest work to date. Featuring many of Anschell's favorite Seattle players, the new recording is a mix of standards (including both spontaneous performances and Anschells irreverent "derangements"), and Anschells own compositions reflecting his passion for rhythmic experimentation, with influences as diverse as South Indian classical music, traditional Cuban drumming and New Orleans funk.
