Boomkat Product Review:
A very fine vinyl reissue of Gonzales' much beloved 2004 album Solo Piano. For those who've not yet heard the Solo Piano album itself, here's a perfect opportunity to find out what everyone raves about. It seemed to spearhead a trend in unaccompanied piano albums, but of all the releases of its ilk from around that time, Gonzales' work remains by far the most enduring and memorable. Residing somewhere within the shaded area of the great classical/jazz Venn diagram, there's something about the Canadian musician's incredibly natural way with melody and phrasing that stamps these recordings with a genuine air of timelessness. The years since its original release have only confirmed Solo Piano's status as a modern classic, and this vinyl reissue makes for a fittingly complete package.
