Winter into Spring [20th Anniversary Edition]by George Winston
In the early 1980s, George Winston's "seasonal" solo piano albums created a revolution of simplicity, a return to pure melody, elegance of line, and exquisite embellishment. Winston makes it all sound easy, and his phenomenal success inspired hundreds of pianists to follow his path. His 1982 WINTER INTO SPRING features beautiful, spare, affecting melodies and quietly blocked chords that often yield to wondrous flurries of colorfully expressive lyricism. An aural impressionist, George Winston could easily have been a painter with his visually suggestive playing. Listen to "Blossom / Meadow" and you'll hear a master at his craft. Close your eyes and you'll see and feel the changing landscape and participate musically in the renewal of life. It's all right there in the remarkable hands of George Winston.

Wow. This is seriously some of the most beautiful music I've ever heard. I listen to primarily punk and metal, yet George Winston is in constant circulation in my CD player. Fantastic. Good for thinking, hanging out, taking a nap. There isn't a bad time to listen to this music. I'd give this 100 stars if I could!!
