raul midon

7 05 2007

new york city has turned out another musical genius in raul midon. counting among his influences masters as diverse as stevie wonder, donny hathaway, jose feliciano and richie havens, raul has mastered a style all his own. he combines the “slap attack” with lightning-fast finger work to create both rhythm and harmony on an acoustic guitar, and his soulful voice often takes the place of a trumpet in solo breaks. check out his handiwork in this performance of “state of mind” from his debut album of the same name.

blind since birth, raul midon brings the same indomitable spirit that’s enabled him to overcome his handicap to all of his music – jazz, r&b, soul, latin, folk and pop alike. check him out – you won’t be disappointed.
