Though he cites the pianists of New Orleans as the biggest influences on his own musical style, the one band that George Winston credits with starting him on the road to being a musician didn't include names like Fats Waller, or Teddy Wilson, or James Booker or Henry Butler in its lineup.

"The Doors," says Winston Thursday, in a telephone interview to preview his upcoming show on Saturday, Oct. 10 at the Historic Holmes Theatre.
