Pianist Bill Anschell's concert credits include six European tours with vocalist Nnenna Freelon and five South American tours with his trio, including concerts in many of the leading international jazz festivals.

In 1998 his CD, "a different note all together," was selected by UPI (United Press International) as one of the year's "10 Best" jazz releases. That CD and his two follow-up releases "When Cooler Heads Prevail" (2001) and "More to the Ear than Meets the Eye" (2006) both enjoyed critical acclaim and extensive stays on the national jazz radio charts.

Anschell is also highly regarded as a composer; his original pieces have been featured on network and cable programs including NBC's "The West Wing" and HBO's acclaimed series, "The Wire."

Anschell received a Golden Ear Award as the "Northwest Jazz Instrumentalist of the Year" in 2005, and his trio was named "Northwest Acoustic Jazz Ensemble of the Year" in 2006.
