SHUT UP AND PLAY THE PIANO
Who is Chilly Gonzales? SHUT UP AND PLAY THE PIANO investigates the pianist Jason Beck, whose alter ego is the self-proclaimed vain and cynical entertainer Chilly Gonzales. An entertaining mix of semi-fictional biography, home videos, a shrewd interview and concert footage.
