Bill Anschell Peru Trio

November 30 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Pianist Bill Anschell’s concert credits include eight European tours with vocalist Nnenna Freelon
and seven South American tours leading his own trio. He is also a prolific composer; his original
pieces have been placed more than 70 times on programs including “The West Wing,” “The
Wire,” and “Yellowstone.”
Anschell, a Seattle native, returned to the Emerald city in 2002 after a long residency in Atlanta.
He received Golden Ear Awards as the “Northwest Jazz Instrumentalist of the Year” in 2005,
2010 and 2011; his trio was named “Northwest Acoustic Jazz Ensemble of the Year” in 2006; his
CD Figments won “Northwest Jazz Recording of the Year” in 2011; and in 2016 he was inducted
into the Seattle Jazz Hall of Fame.
Anschell is also well known as a jazz humorist, and in 2014 he was a winner of the inaugural
Paul Desmond Award,’s celebration of the funniest jazz artists.
Bassist Chris Symer moved to Seattle in 2002 from Los Angeles, where he was an in-demand
player for live gigs and studio work. Feeling at home playing almost any type of music, he has
been busy working in a wide variety of musical situations. He has performed in groups ranging
from the unclassifiable Southern California-based band “Headless Household”; to sideman work
with Bennie Maupin, Charlie Byrd, Tierney Sutton, Roger Kellaway and Robben Ford; to
orchestral playing for film scores.
Symer’s consistent sound and reliable sense of direction have helped him not only find work, but
to get there on time as well.
Jeff Busch is an exuberant drummer/percussionist, vocalist, and composer who has been active
on the Seattle jazz, gospel, and Latin jazz scenes for the past 20 years. He is a member of the
Jovino Santos Neto Quinteto, whose 2004 recording ‘Canto do Rio’ was nominated for a Latin
Jazz Grammy.
In 1997, Jeff spent six months in Brazil and studied with a variety of percussionists including
Edmilson Costa Teixeira, Gilo do Pandeiro, and Mestres Memeu and Lazaro from Olodum; he
returned to tour as a performer in 1998.
Busch was the recipient of a King County Arts grant for a recording project entitled “Drums and
Voices – A Collage of Negro Spirituals,” with gospel singer Patrinell Wright and Master
Senegalese drummer Thione Diop. In addition to performing, Jeff continues his work as a dance
accompanist, producer, educator, studio musician and visual artist.

Thanks to Ray and Sharon for providing a great place for so many talented artists to do their thing. The music is always top notch, the food is incredible (Scallops w/ Risotto is my favorite), and it's always a great time.

We went to see some live music. There's a pricey cover charge but the music was really good. The food was excellent. Delicious pork loin with cream sauce. Good portion size of antipasto. Wonderful cheeses and salami. Very delicious seafood pasta. The prices were reasonable. We picked a great Italian Amorone wine off the shelf. The corkage was pretty steep, 12.00 given we had appetizers, full dinner and 20.00 cover. But the wine was fantastic and a fair price. Lots of wines from most important wine regions. The shelves are full and the prices fair. We'd definitely return. Service was very good especially given it was a full house. Small venue, quaint and enjoyable.

Close, tightly packed room, but comfortable. Soft lighting, exceptional wine selection. The wonderful, smooth vocalizations of Gail Pettis backed by her talented quartet. Hot and delicious shrimp fettacini paired with a perfect chardonnay. Fantastic. A winner all the way.

Great spot, love the small plate options. Outdoor seating was a great option. My favorite this time was flatbread with goat cheese, figs and balsamic glaze. Yum

They helped make our 8th wedding anniversary so special. Amazing food, excellent cocktails, and such a fun and classy wine shop. I will be coming here more often, and hopefully have time to go see some of the live music soon.

I almost hate to post as this is small and exquisite and I really don't want to share! However, everyone should have this experience; toothsome menu choices just right sized for visiting and music listening. And live music! First time out post covid and I felt like I'd been nervous system detoxed; hallelujah for establishements that are here for us all in the transition time. Thank you to the owners and the musicians!! And saftey is top notch with vaccine proof required; another thank you!
