Bill Anschell: When Cooler Heads Prevail
There is no question that Bill Anschell is an accomplished Pianist and arranger. His piano artistry is best demonstrated on these two tunes; "Sweet And Lovely" and "No Hurry" (An original). His approach is novel, his ideas freshly spun and combined with a beautiful touch, makes him the 'compleat' musician that he is. His accompaniment is adequate but Anschell is clearly the man in charge. This is a recording for all the Piano afficionados out there to enjoy.

Track Listing

Sweet and Lovely; Dear Old Stockholm; Undercurrent Event; Little Niles; No Hurry; La Flor de la Canela; If It Isn't One Thing ?; One More Mile; Woody's Turn; Angels Watching Over Me.
