5.0 out of 5 stars More mastery from the Maestro August 28, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
A man of many talents, Gonzales returns yet again with an absolutely wonderful release. Every song is incredibly listenable and no track is longer than three and a half minutes long, never wearing out it's welcome. I've been a fan of his work ever since seeing him open (with Peaches) for Elastica in 2000, and he's never disappointed. Just wish he'd play more shows in North America!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, haunting album November 1, 2012
By Marco
Format:Audio CD
This is definitely on my best of 2012 music list. Gonzales plays 14 pieces that seem perfect for a rainy day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Headphone Commute Review April 13, 2014
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
Do you know Gonzales? Perhaps you simply know Jason Charles Beck by his Chilly Gonzales moniker, under which he produces orchestral hip-hop with tongue-in-cheek humor and silly-witty rhymes. I’m talking here about his 2011 The Unspeakable Chilly Gonzales, on which he spews ridiculousness like “I’m at home in a taxi cab / self-absorbed, the musical maxi-pad / I like sunsets, long walks on the beach / I don’t rap like Big Poppa / ’cause I don’t preach.” And for some reason I’m secretly attracted to these pieces as well, slotting them away for my guilty pleasure. Afterall, his stage persona of a Jewish supervillain MC has achieved some European nightclub recognition, and even scored a Grammy nomination. Oh, and did you know that his 2010 track “Never Stop” was the opening tune in the Apple iPad commercial?

But I’m not here to discuss his comic rap outfit today. Did you know that Gonzales is also one of the most prolific piano players on the scene? That’s right – his 2004 Solo Piano album, on which Beck lays down some of the most intimate piano pieces you have ever heard, is still his best-selling release to date! The inevitable success of the album has earned him appearance spots on albums alongside Jamie Lidell, Buck 65, Feist, Daft Punk, and even Drake. He seems to be that “piano guy” everyone wants to hear and compare to Erik Satie, and not the monologue spitting entertainer, the way his very own track declares “Shut Up and Play the Piano”

Well, it’s eight years later, and Gonzales is back! A hunchback silhouette behind an upright piano, Chilly returns to his inner beauty he left us with the first release. The immediate observation by an unprepared listener reveals the effortlessness with which Beck glides across the keys.

5.0 out of 5 stars An accidental discovery January 31, 2014

Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I was led to this album by trying to locate the music used on a TV commercial . Not only did I find the music I was looking for, but also many other gems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moar Piano! January 18, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
If you enjoyed the first Solo Piano, you will really appreciate the complexity of this album. Chilly is an amazing pianist and completely delivered on this album. I hope there is a Solo Piano III.
