Chilly Gonzales
Solo Piano III

“We want Chilly Willy!” “We want Chilly Willy!” While Barney Gumble may have been clamouring for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, unfortunately all we’ve got in at the moment is Chilly Gonzalez. He’ll have to make do. Solo Piano III is - who’d have guessed - the third LP in the Grammy-winner's series of records for solo piano. Act quickly to get one of the copies with a bonus CD of live recordings.

Chilly Gonzales
Solo Piano

Gentle Threat are putting a few old Chilly Gonzales albums back out into the world. This record from the Canadian polymath is as it suggests with its title: Solo Piano. Given Gonzales’ musical background, it is a pleasant surprise how classical this sounds, recalling a relaxed Chopin or a Satie. White vinyl!

Jarvis Cocker & Chilly Gonzales
Room 29

How about this for a team-up: witty Pulp man Jarvis Cocker and multi-faceted German entertainer Chilly Gonzales (and on Serious-Proper-Classical-Music-Label Deutsche Grammophon too!). Room 29 is a theatre piece the two devised about a certain famous Hollywood hotel room, complete with spoken word, piano interludes and showtunes. CD / LP release.

Chilly Gonzales
Chambers

‘Chambers’ is the highly anticipated follow up to ‘Solo Piano II’ by Canadian electro pianist/composer Chilly Gonzales. The pioneering veteran has composed the album for piano and string quartet as a modern re-imagining of traditional, romantic era chamber music inspired by an evolving relationship with Hamburg's Kaiser Quartet that has a distinctively compulsive pop sound that coexists alongside Gonzales’s characteristically avant garde attitude.

Chilly Gonzales
Re-Introduction Etudes

Maestro of the piano Chilly Gonzales presents a beginners guide to piano for what he terms the ‘lapsed amateur pianist’. Re-Introduction Etudes is an instruction manual with companion CD designed to reignite a love of playing the instrument, delivered in his unique, humorous manner. A nice touch from a charismatic performer. Book & CD from Gentle Threat.

Chilly Gonzales
Solo Piano II

Chilly Gonzales takes a seat at the keyboard once more. The follow-up to 2004’s Solo Piano is another collection of lush lounge compositions that blur the lines between classical and pop. There’s plenty of Debussy, Schubert and Satie in here, but there’s also the melodic nouse one would expect from Drake’s go-to pianist. Solo Piano II is a lovely thing - let’s hope we don’t have to wait another eight years for the next instalment.

The Unspeakable Chilly Gonzales

Gentle Threat are putting a few old Chilly Gonzales albums back out into the world. This record from the Canadian polymath is a rap album, but with entirely orchestral backing: you probably don’t have one of those already to you? Thankfully he is able to overcome the potential novelty aspect of the record. The Unspeakable Chilly Gonzales everybody!

Chilly Gonzales
Ivory Tower

Gentle Threat are putting several old Chilly Gonzales albums back into print. This record from the busy Canadian was released in 2010 to accompany a film that Gonzales himself appears in. I’ve not seen Ivory Tower The Movie, but the album is an entertaining melange of genres and styles, spread over 2 LPs.
