Inspired by blues, rock, R&B and jazz, George Winston began playing the organ and electric piano in 1967 and continues to be one of the best known performers playing contemporary instrumental music. Since the ‘80s Winston has released a multitude of piano albums including, Autumn, and the platinum selling albums: Winter Into Spring, and December.
Winston's 2002 album Night Divides the Day – The Music of the Doors took the music of the ‘60s band The Doors and transformed it into solo pianos. The title of Winston's album is a lyric from Break on Through (To the Other Side), the first track of the Doors' self-titled first album.
In 2010, Winston released Love Will Come – The Music of Vince Guaraldi, Volume 2, the follow up to Linus and Lucy – The Music of Vince Guaraldi (1996), featuring compositions by the late jazz pianist, include pieces from the Peanuts® TV specials.
