In a city full of terrific jazz pianists, Bill Anchell is in the top tier of that group. You can see and hear him in a variety of Northwest venues, either leading his own groups or working in groups led by his many musical colleagues.
It was a pleasure to finally get Bill into the KPLU performance studio for a live show and interview with jazz host, Abe Beeson. Between songs we learn that Bill cut his musical teeth in prog-rock and even though his great love is mainstream acoustic jazz piano, he’s also begun experimenting in electronica.
Settle in for some delightful music from a talented and interesting man—Bill Anschell.
