Freedom Hall Presents Singer-songwriter Raul Midón
illi News/10006749

The New York Times says Raul Midón is "A one-man band who turns a guitar into an orchestra and his voice into a chorus."

CHICAGO - Feb. 8, 2019 - illiNews -- Freedom Hall Series will feature Raul Midón. We are thrilled to congratulate Raul Midón on his recent Grammy nomination for Best Jazz Vocal Album If You Really Want, which features the Metropole Orkest. This is Midón's second nomination in two years.

Singer-songwriter and guitarist Raul Midón has earned renown as one of music's most distinctive and searching voices. His guitar playing is a syncopated, flamenco- and jazz-infused wonder in which bass, harmony and melodic lines fly from the fretboard in a way that seems to belie the fact that all the music is being produced by just two hands.

Along with releasing 10 studio albums as a solo artist, Midón – dubbed "an eclectic adventurist" by People magazine – has collaborated with such heroes as Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder, and Bill Withers, along with contributing to recordings by Queen Latifah, Snoop Dogg and the soundtrack to Spike Lee's She Hate Me. A native of New Mexico who was educated in the jazz program of the University of Miami – and who now lives in Maryland after years in New York City – Midón has earned acclaim the world over, with a fanbase that stretches from San Francisco to India, Amsterdam to Tokyo. A rapt critic for the U.K.'s Guardian newspaper wrote: "Midón has a lovely voice, a beautifully controlled tenor that can express anything from tenderness to passion… And the guy can play. His strumming has a flamenco flourish, but after a while, you realize he can do every kind of accompaniment he needs on acoustic guitar."
