Santana

Had neighbors discussing Kennedy Center Honors.

I remember the buzz about Santana at Woodstock.

Everybody ran out and bought their first album and the followup album Abraxas.

Heckuva performance by these young musicians.

Great performance for sure. I still like the music from the first album better than anything since. I was a kid at the time and had a Santana cover band for several years.

Carlos Santana is reuniting most of the "classic" Santana lineup for next year, including Gregg Rolie, Michael Shrieve and Michael Carabello and Rolie's Journey co-founder Neal Schon, who joined the band at the age of 16 and debuted on "Santana III." Benny Rietveld will be on bass. The reunion will also include co-founder/percussionist Marcus Malone, who has been living as a homeless man in Oakland. You can read about it here -- Carlos Santana Reunites with Homeless Ex Bandmate.




Here's raw video of the KRON-TV reporter's first encounter with Malone:


Skip to 2:35 min. to get to the part where Malone explains who he is and tells him about his role in Santana. The reporter is understandably skeptical.


Here's some raw video of the reunion with Santana:



The CNN story:



It's a great story, but Carlos' spiritual gobbleygook gets to be wearying.

I have been to several Carlos Santana concerts over the years and I got worn out by the sermons. I like and agree with his message, but for me it's a time and place thing. Friday night at the Fillmore is not my time and place.

Love Santana's stuff. Great lyrical player and owns that latin blues genre.

Thanks for the post and didn't know about the reunion.

Pick and choose w/ Carlos and you're fine.

A great bandleader and, as a guitar player ?

Very similar to Neil Young : not in-your-face chops but instantly recognizable and singular.

III was the first record I was exposed to by him as a kid. Made hearing the first one kinda disappointing when I finally got around to it.

"Welcome" is by far my favorite.

Michael Shrieve - one of rock's greatest drummers at the age of 20.

He ought to have patented his guitar tone.

I'd have to agree that as a player his style is "instantly recognizable and singular" but isn't that what makes most guitarists great? It isn't all about flash and fire chops. IMHO it's about the artistry of creation.

Carlos Santana is just as recognizable for his style as Clapton is for his or B.B. King or SRV or dozens of others. You can play "Name That Guitarist" with him and usually guess it's him in three or four notes.

It depends if you mean Woodstock the festival or Woodstock the film.

The album was released the same month as the festival (August 1969) but there were only a half-million of us at the festival and not everyone there saw or remembered who Santana was. Including ... <cough> ... me. *

But I do remember hearing cuts from the LP on FM radio and I bought a copy from Alexanders department store in Queens.

Then, when the movie came out (a year later) things got a lot hotter.


* Santana played in the middle of Saturday afternoon. As I have posted before, all day and night on Saturday I was in the woods next to the site and wasn't paying too much attention to the concert stage. I know. I was an idiot.

I think it's that regular 6th that gives him away.

I saw The Santana Blues Band along with the Youngbloods, the A.B. Sky Blues Band and It's a Beautiful Day at the Avalon Ballroom about two years before the first Santana album came out. It was basically a five piece hard rock/blues band that sounded quite different from the Latin tinged band the world came to know a little later.

Only the Youngbloods had an album out already, but all of them had albums in another year, or two. It's A Beautiful Day was the standout performance at that show!

He definitely picked the right path.

IMNSHO - that Santana Blues Band stuff is OK but he's not suited to it.

Every third riff just kinda peters out.

Well - all's well that ends well.
