For those of you who are not familiar with Raul’s work he plays in several genres:  Latin Jazz where he plays with a core group of musicians who are sometimes joined by guests like Nic Turner or Todd Sharpeville; solo piano work wide ranging in styles and influenced by musicians like Keith Jarrett and his own Cuban background and semi-classical pieces written for a varying ensemble – of these perhaps the best known is Pembrokeshire Weather Report first performed  at St David’s Cathedral, Pembrokeshire in 2009 and shown below.
