"I never really got into Gonazales first CD that much. I heard it, thought it was kinda cool, but then forgot all about it.
Then one day I heard about the solo piano CD, and downloaded it right away. It was so beautiful - so beautiful, in fact, that I almost immediately ordered the import version of it.
It's like a set of Satie or Debussy tracks. A perfect chill-out CD if you like gorgeous solo piano. My fiancee and I once listened to it while laying on our backs looking up at the blue sky over Central Park in NYC... such a lovely memory.
This DVD is really pretty great. There are many funny bits, several lessons on composition and melody - all with a great humerous tongue-in-cheek humor that is unmistakably Gonzales. It's not pretentious - it just shows that this guy knows his stuff and is probably a step ahead of the rest of us.
One scene during a concert right when he goes to play what is my favorite piano track from the CD all the lights on stage go out and a single spotlight illuminates an audience member - seemingly chosen at random. It's unlike anything I have ever seen in a live concert and it comes off beautifully.
First, buy the SOLO PIANO CD. Then, if you love that, buy this companion DVD. You will not be disappointed."
