Solo Piano by Gonzales
Released: Apr 2005
Label: Arts&Crafts
Gonzales tones down the funny stuff on the straightforwardly titled Solo Piano. He sheds the comedic antics and electro production of his hip-hop persona, Chilly Gonzales, and sits down at the grand piano, putting full focus on his elegant, lyrical playing. Turning to his classical training and theater background, Gonzales delivers a set of spare but never minimal mood pieces. Drawing from Chopin, Satie and Gershwin, he manages a curious kind of timelessness. The album was recorded in 2004 but suggests the milieu of a century earlier.
