“Meeting once again at the intersection of American pop and Latin flair, [Rob] Thomas showcases his signature vocals over Santana's dizzying guitar, congas and a lively horn section…there's a similarly gigantic energy [to 'Smooth'] on 'Move' that's fit for both afternoon cookouts and dance clubs.” - San Francisco Chronicle

Santana Sweeps

“'Joy,' as its title suggests, is a celebratory, uplifting track, though that euphoria is couched in a heavy, yearning groove that blends elements of reggae, blues, gospel, and country.” - Rolling Stone

I practically glued my Koss headphones to my head to listen to Abraxas in high school in the early 70's. Since then Carlos has been part of my brain. His music never gets old.

42 years ago at the age 16, Santana’s music changed my life and made me wanted to play solo guitar. From Europe, via Samba Pa Ti and all his great albums I sill own on vinyl. I never became very good at it, but his music still touches me….. cheers
