Some of the best piano music ever. Captures winter and Christmas perfectly. Add it to Vince Garaldi's "A Charlie Brown Christmas" , put it on 'shuffle' and you have great Christmas music all day.

A Christmas tradition is to sit in glow of my tree with a cup of holiday cheer and listen.... The first time I ever heard of George Winston, I was in a store at the holidays and one of the cuts from December came on. I was stopped in my tracks, I asked the clerk who this was. I did not buy anything there but went to the nearest music store. I have much of his music but this is the sentimental favorite and the best Christmas music ever.

This album by George Winston falls into the New Age/Pop category. In my opinion it is a better fit in the Easy Listening category. The piano, like the Violin lends itself to a wide range of moods. Winston seems to understand moods and his piano playing is rich in soft and soothing mood. I have several of Winston's albums and each target a different concept. Winston does get repetitive and one can only listen a while. But if soft mood music is what you need at the moment, Winston fits the need.

George Winston's Best

"In the early 80's I first heard the song "Thanksgiving" on the Windham Hill 1982 or '84 Sampler (my memory escapes me right now). When I noticed who the artist was and the album from which the song was selected, I went and bought the cassette. I actually played this cassette until it could not longer play (thank goodness for CDs). So after I thoroughly wore out my cassette version I purchased the CD.The great thing about this album, for me, is I never get tired of it. I have listened to these songs for the last 18 years and they always sound as if I am listening to them for the first time. The CD has a winter feel to it; quiet, peaceful, soothing, melodic, and clear. There is an inclusion of classical favorites such as Bach's "Joy," the traditional version of "Jesus, Jesus Rest Your Head," and the traditional version of "Carol of the Bells," etc.The music itself is very graceful and well defined. It is great music to have in the background when you read or study. I guess that is why I have enjoyed this music for so long. Actually, this CD also works well for the Christmas season or for listening all year round. George Winston is a wonderful piano player. His playing is filled with careful touch, strong emotional texture, and a style that grows on you every time you listen. I believe this is his best work produced, I highly recommend it, especially if you love classical, piano, and instrumental music."
Beautifully, contemplative music!

"A friend introduced me to George Winston several years ago with this very cd. Am I ever glad she did, as it opened a new world of music for me! I enjoy all the Windham Hill artists. I love Winstons' "Carole of the Bells," "Joy," and "Thanksgiving" arrangements. This entire cd is so beautifully contemplative and although it has Christmas music on it, it is a cd that I enjoy year round. Everyone that I introduce to it, has the same reaction as I initially did...."It's beautiful." I have since collected several other George Winston releases, but I believe this is my all time favorite. Pure, classic GW. It's certainly a "must-have" for the Holiday season! If you enjoy solo piano, then you're sure to enjoy "December.""
