New Music :: [Raul Midon]
I love it when people passionately recommend music... Graeme recommended this chap : Raul Midon and I am so glad he did! Raul makes beautiful, soulful music with his acoustic guitar and his blessed voice. The rhythm... the melody... beautiful vocals... even trumpet sounds... all by one man. Truly beautiful.
His music is hard to put into words... it needs to be felt... experienced... witnessed... just like Graeme did when he saw Raul play at the Shepherd's Bush Empire. I would, therefore, recommend you watch this movie of Raul playing at the JFKennedy Center for the Performing Arts and thanks to them for posting the film :: ((link))
Amazing! Will check out Raul's album :: ((state of mind)) on Blue Note (which in itself is an endorsement of quality) when I get a chance.
Check him out!
