Throughout Figments, pianist Bill Anschell’s creative, abstract approach takes each song to unexpected places without ever leaving his audience behind. Self-recorded over a series of late nights, after gigs, when Anschell’s "internal supervisor had clocked out." The result is twelve genre-bending, near stream-of-consciousness takes of solo piano covering a mix of jazz standards and pop songs from the 60s and 70s. Highlights include Arlo Guthrie’s protest song "Alice’s Restaurant," a meditative take on the Rodgers and Hart standard "It Never Entered My Mind," and a prepared-piano version of Joni Mitchell’s "Big Yellow Taxi." •"No matter where Anschell plays on the keyboard, he sounds like no other pianist." - JazzTimes
