Interview with NetRadio

George Winston's 15th solo piano album, Restless Wind, presents a stunning journey documenting the pianist's sociological observations in American history. Winston repurposes for the modern listener stunningly relevant works by musical greats such as Sam Cooke, The Doors, Stephen Stills, George & Ira Gershwin, Country Joe McDonald, and others. Restless Wind captures Winston's inimitable melodic language where piano textures and tones set the stage for vivid renderings of classic compositions. He says, "Ultimately, the main reason these 11 songs were chosen was how as instrumental pieces they worked well with each other in this sequence, the same way I have worked for all the albums I've recorded."

In support of Restless Wind, Winston has been touring the states, which included a 4/19 date in Keaney at Merryman PAC, and NETNebraska's Genevieve Randall spoke with GW.       Listen to thye attached file
