Amazing guitarist, singer-songwriter, and mouth-trumpeter!

Today on the show we have jazz guitarist, soul singer, soul songwriter, and mouth trumpeter extraordinare Raul Midon. Raul was in town recently for the Monterey Jazz Festival on Tour, brought here by UCSB’s Arts&Lectures, and so when I got a chance to sit down with the man and talk about his history and his music, I immediately said yes please. He’s played with Bill Withers, with India Arie, Lizz Right, Richard Bona, and many others. He also got a chance to be produced by the legendary Arif Mardin of Atlantic Records.

I first heard Midon on this viral video of him playing John Coltrane’s "Giant Steps" in all 12 keys on acoustic guitar and with that mouth trumpet accompaniment. It’s really an amazing thing. His most recent album is Don’t Hesitate, on the Artistry Music label.

Here's the dates for Monterey Jazz Festival on tour.

You can find Raul on raulmidon.com and on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Soundcloud and on YouTube.
