Plan9 Music

He's been an indie kid, a Jewish Rapper, a soft rocker, a record-breaking solo pianist, a soundtrack composer, a producer (of Feist, Jane Birkin and Jamie Lidell), and a member of a band of puppets. Yet somehow that's just not enough for Jason Beck aka Chilly Gonzales, the Canadian who burst onto the global scene in 1999 alongside the similarly playful Peaches. For the Unspeakable Chilly Gonzales, he's decided to make the world's first orchestral Rap album. Working alongside film-score-composer brother, Christope Beck, the Unspeakable. Is a pithy 27 minutes and nine songs long, far too brief to outstay it's welcome. Instead it flies past in a whirlwind of razor-sharp, self-deprecating one-liners and knowingly smart-arse comments about the state of the industry and the Rap genre, all set against a backdrop of symphonic vignettes more familiar within epic Hollywood movies.
