Solo Piano II is an album by Chilly Gonzales which was released on August 27, 2012. The album features 14 original compositions for piano written and performed by Chilly Gonzales. The album was named a longlisted nominee for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize on June 13, 2013. The ideas for the pieces were formed through improvisation and extensive note-taking of melodies and other musical ideas over years.

Solo Piano III completes the Solo Piano trilogy. Like any final act, there are complications and consequences, followed by an urgent race to the finish line.

Chilly Gonzales - Solo Piano II is another copy of this release with a CD bonus track.

Most of Solo Piano II, however, is a little more upbeat, full of playful flourishes and hints of Gonzales’ jazz background. White Keys is summery and whimsical, though the melody in the higher registers is carefully undermined by a moody retreat to lower keys halfway through. Minor Fantasy, meanwhile, brings to mind images of elegant, high-ceilinged drawing rooms and tuxedos, and Evolving Doors could almost be Chopin at his most cheerful.

In December 2011, Chilly Gonzales moved his piano into Paris Studio Pigalle. There, alone for 10 days, he recorded a handful of songs that had made the short list from a hundred or so melodies written over the eight years that had passed since the release of the now iconic Solo Piano. Hour upon hour, the purest and most microscopic process of recording took place. 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. Solo Piano II is one of those albums that’s nearly impossible to simply describe – check out the tracks for yourself and the little video medley.
