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, allaboutjazz.com’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.
