A WINDHAM HILL EVENING

PBS   (Wed Nov 26, 10 p.m. ET)

 

If youíve heard George Winstonís piano music Ė if youíve ever eaten in a place where they serve goat cheese, you no doubt have Ė then you know what the music on the Windham Hill record label is like.  ďA sound so new that critics and musicians together cannot agree what to call it,Ē says the announcer opening this concert at Virginiaís Wolf Trap.  I know what to call it: easy listening (and thatís the first time Iíve ever used that phrase as a compliment, not an insult).  Unfortunately, Winston, Windham Hillís most famous son, does not play in this concert, but colleagues with a similar sound do: Will Ackerman and Michael Hedges on guitars and the group Shadowfax fill an immensely pleasant hour of lovely, lilting, imaginative music good enough to listen to not just eat to.  Grade: A
