Twenty years since its original release as the follow-up to Winston's 1980 landmark solo piano debut, Autumn, his Winter Into Spring still serves as the ideal soundtrack to the seasonal changes alluded to in its title.
Although he has long since tired of the description, pianist George Winston has become synonymous with the new-age genre thanks to his seasonal-themed recordings for the Windham Hill label over the past two decades. And while Winston's output at one time was dominated by original compositions, in recent years, the artist has delved headfirst into interpretations of songs by everyone from Vince Guaraldi ("Linus and Lucy") to Garth Brooks to Winston's Windham Hill colleague Philip Aabaerg.
Pianist George Winston will embark on a 25-date tour of Japan in celebration of the 20th anniversary of his landmark solo debut album "Autumn," released by Windham Hill. BMG/Funhouse has re-released "Autumn" in Japanwith three newly recorded bonus tracks -- the Doors' "The Crystal Ship" and "I Can't See Your Face In My Mind," as well as Procol Harum's "Too Much Between Us."
