JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2005 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Raul Midon

They promoted Raul Midon, the New Mexican sensation, so heavilythat there are probably still record company posters for this guy on the poles downtown. He was introduced as "someone who we would remember exactly where we were the first time we heard him." I remember. It was Milestones. Raul Midón had a great voice and a very rhythmic guitar style but he threw way too much into each song. Great moments flew by and his songs just didn't hold together. Over to the Little for more Paul Smoker. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
