Default George Winston

Good time of year I think to create a thread about him.

Lovely music, I grew up listening to his album December around Christmas time, and his music is now synonymous with childhood and the holidays for me.

I was about to bash you for your 2Pac comments in the other thread, but I think you've redeemed yourself.

He is more new age (understand 'ambient' music) than classical music. Signed on an overtly new age label, WIndham Hill.
