In Bed with Chilly Gonzales
Fri 23 04, 20:45
The composer and showman in slippers and bathrobe pursues his craft with the deepest devotion: he is an entertainer. That his modest contribution to this calling would one day result in the following announcement was virtually inevitable: Chilly Gonzales has made a Christmas album.
With his undisguised fidelity to melody, Gonzales deftly maneuvers his way through the mythical, all-encompassing songbook of Christmas; in his choice of tunes, he opts for nuance over pomp. From We Three Kings to Wham, the great revelation of this album lies in the restrained, pure beauty of its interpretation in Gonzales' signature minor keys.
The special with Chilly Gonzales takes place within the framework of the funding project " c/o pop 2021-musichubgermany" and is supported by the Initiative Musik gemeinnützige Projektgesellschaft GmbH with project funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
