For the December 2018 issue of JazzTimes, I had the enjoyable task of creating a “Before & After” playlist for the multi-talented singer/guitarist/songwriter Raul Midón. Raul and I listened together in a Manhattan recording studio, and he gave me his impressions of the music before and after I identified artists and albums (he guessed the majority of artists pretty quickly). The article at JazzTimes.com includes a Spotify playlist, so you can listen along with us as you read his comments. Raul just earned his second Grammy nomination for his latest album, If You Really Want, a soulful collaboration with arranger/composer Vince Mendoza and the Metropole Orkest, the Dutch jazz orchestra.
