About Raul Midon: One man, one guitar—but not like you've ever heard before. Raul Midon uses his mouth like a trumpet and his guitar like a drum for an explosive blend of bass, harmony, rhythm and melody. His rich, supple tenor, not to mention his flamenco and jazz-infused songs, make this New Mexico-bred New Yorker one to watch on the world scene. Raul Midon is an original singer-songwriter whose particular brand of laid-back soul and pop reflects musical influences ranging from jazz to Latin folklore. Midon unleashes a silky, soulful tenor and dazzling percussive guitar style—a syncopated, flamenco and jazz infused approach in which bass, harmony, and melodic lines emanate from the fretboard in one slap-happy storm. He also delivers an improvisational mouth horn technique in which he creates a bebop “trumpet" solo entirely with his lips. The alchemy of Midon's distinct voice, strumming, beats and vocal mouth trumpet sounds to create a stunning one-man performance. His unique style shows influence of virtually every musical genre which came before him, including jazz, blues, R&B, and folk. Midon has performed with such artists as Shakira, Jose Feliciano, Stevie Wonder and Julio Iglesias.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
