PDX Jazz and Portland Jazz Festival says
Singer-songwriter and guitarist Raul Midón has earned renown as one of music’s most distinctive and searching voices. The New Mexico native, blind since birth, has lived a life devoted to shattering stereotypes. Midón has collaborated with such heroes as Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder, Dianne Reeves, Bill Withers, India Arie and Lizz Wright, along with contributing to recordings by Jason Mraz, Queen Latifah, Snoop Dogg and the soundtrack to Spike Lee’s She Hate Me. Midón has released seven albums since 1999, including the hit studio recordings State of Mind (Manhattan/EMI, 2005), A World Within a World (Manhattan/EMI, 2007) and Synthesis (Decca/Universal, 2009). His most recent release is the captivating CD/DVD Invisible Chains – Live from NYC. Attuned listeners can hear the inspirations of Donny Hathaway and Richie Havens in his work, as well as Sting and Paul Simon. But Midón’s questing musicality makes him, as The Huffington Post put it, “a free man beyond category.”
“…a one-man band who turns a guitar into an orchestra and his voice into a chorus.” – The New York Times
