Chilly Gonzales, Grammy-winning Canadian pianist and entertainer currently living in Europe,
is known as much for the intimate piano touch of best-selling albums Solo Piano and Solo
Piano II as for his showmanship and composition for award-winning stars. "Gonzo", as he is
known to close collaborators, aims to be a man of his time, approaching the piano with classical
and jazz training but with the attitude of a rapper.
Solo Piano (2004) appeared in a more innocent time, when Chilly Gonzales was a pioneer in
evoking the dying genres of classical and jazz and dragged them kicking and screaming into the 21st
century. This album of accidental virtuosity surprised everyone, including the self-described musical
genius himself.
Solo Piano II (2012) was a pop mini-masterpiece for a wired world, a transition to a new reality.
By then a legendary entertainer and A-list collaborator (Drake, Daft Punk, Feist) Chilly Gonzales
delivered a catchy, polished collection; he was aiming to please and ready for prime time. The sequel
definitively satisfied an ever-increasing audience hungry for Gonzo’s imperfectly perfect miniatures.
Solo Piano III ( release 7th sep 2018) comes at a more problematic inflection point.
Like any final act, there are complications and consequences, followed by an urgent race to the
finish line. Like its predecessors, it’s a mostly happy ending in C major, but there is more dissonance,
tension and ambiguity along the way.
