MUSIC REVIEW BY George Fendel, High Standards Jazz

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Seattle-based pianist Bill Anschell's latest CD, Shifting Standards, is very well suited to the title. He and his trio colleagues offer some melodic invention, rhythmic twists and fresh takes on nine celebrated standards. His bassist, Jeff Johnson, has been a Seattle treasure for many years. Drummer D'Vonne Lewis, a new name to me, offers subtle but strong support. The essence of these nine classics is examined with care and cohesiveness, and the creative efforts always leaves their revered melodies intact for us to enjoy. On tunes as varied as "Night In Tunisia", "Cheek To Cheek", Soul Eyes", "Jitterbug Waltz", "All Of You" and lots more, Bill Anschell and associates have provided us with a breath of fresh air on an album of true American gems.
