Raul Midón at Yoshi's

Blind guitarist Raul Midón is a soul/jazz singer whose impassioned acoustic playing has gotten him just as much attention as his smooth singing voice. When he was 38 years old, he moved to New York City intent on making it as a musician and developed his percussive style to get attention from the noisy crowds in the Top 40 bars he played when he was starting out. His energetic mix of soul, pop, jazz, folk, and Latin music, delivered in his powerful tenor, is accented by his amazing faux trumpet work. He was soon touring as a backing singer for Shakira and Julio Iglesias, writing songs for other artists, and recording for Manhattan Records. His most recent album, the self-produced Bad Ass and Blind, was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Vocal Jazz Album category. He’s a mesmerizing performer with an impressive vocal range to complement his dazzling fretwork
