EDITORS’ NOTES

Raul Midon burst onto the scene with 2005’s State of Mind, displaying a soulful voice, thoughtful songs, and a percussive brand of acoustic guitar playing. Now several albums in, he now returns with Don’t Hesitate. Here he does most of the recording in his home studio with a few special guests: bassists Richard Bona (“If You Want Me To”) and Marcus Miller (“Mi Amigo Cubano”) and singers Lizz Wright (“Keep Holding On”) and Dianne Reeves (“Make It Better”). The big news, however, is that the outstanding “Mi Amigo Cubano” is a songwriting collaboration with the mostly retired Bill Withers. Midon himself is in fine form throughout.

Mi Amigo Cubano

“Mi Amigo Cubano” is amazing! Written with the legendary Bill Withers and featuring a solo worthy of Santana. Can’t wait for the rest...

Mi Amigo Raul Midon

I've been listening to this amazing man for quite sometime and he never disappoints. I hope to get this early when I see him live this Wednesday. But it goes to show you how talented he is when Carlos Santana, himself, plays along. Raul has an amazing voice and it is wonderfully showcased on this song...

A must listen from start to finish!

Raul’s music is a kind of universal language, an eclectic mix of inspirational sound where dreams become reality.
