Review: Pianist/composer Anschell's recordings are filled with his unique and vibrant original compositions or surprising, liberated arrangements of jazz & pop classics. For Shifting Standards, Anschell depends on the uncanny shared intuition that's been developed over ten years with his trio-mates, bassist Jeff Johnson and drummer D'Vonne Lewis. Well-loved standards from jazz and Great American Songbook composers unfold, capturing the trio's live chemistry and spontaneity.
