Dreamer & Dreamed
The Dreamer and the Dreamed is Miguel Maldonado as you have never heard him before. Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., Miguel started studying clarinet at 19, switching to tenor sax at 22. He soon added soprano sax and flute as well as other wind instruments and percussion from around the world. He played in Florida in a very busy Blues band where he became involved with the Carribean community, performing with notable steel drummer Tony Kitchner (Lord Kitchner's son), Jr. Pussette's Disney World steel band (The Silver Stars), and Othello Mollineaux. In Oregon he performed with African drummers O.B. Addy and Chatta Addy, and in Maui, Hawaii with Willie Nelson and Pat Simmons (Doobie Brothers). This is Miguel's debut recording of his original compositions. The Dreamer and the Dreamed CD contains a kaleidoscope of global sounds, including jazz, blues, R&B, Caribbean, African, Indian and Japanese. This in an interesting mix that connects the world through sound.
