I hope everyone is having a safe and pleasant Memorial Day!
We are drawing from Bill's "Easy Listening" set for the music. I have chosen only one song to emphasize the day. Listen to any Memorial Day tribute and you find a reason to be thankful for what we all many times take for granted.
. . . . So listen with Bill, watch these truly American scenes and reflect.
George Winston was first recorded by John Fahey for Fahey's Takoma Records. The album Ballads and Blues disappeared without much notice, although it was later reissued on Winston's Dancing Cat Records. However, in 1979, William Ackerman talked with Winston about having Winston record for Ackerman's new record label, Windham Hill Records. At first Winston played some guitar pieces he liked and then he played some of his nighttime music on the piano, which became the basis for the record Autumn, which Ackerman produced. Autumn soon became the best-selling record in the Windham Hill catalog, and his albums December and Winter into Spring both went platinum (million-plus sales in the United States). He has recorded seven more solo piano albums, and he is one of the best known performers playing contemporary instrumental music. thanks WIKI
