Santana - Shaman
Carlos Santana's "Shaman" album features a vast array of musical styles and special guests. Covering genres ranging from R&B, to rock, to blues, the master guitarist explicitly illustrates his virtuoso skills. With a little help from such luminaries as Macy Gray, Michelle Branch, Ozomatli, and others this is an awesome display of talent and passion. "Shaman" has been digitally enhanced for the DVD-Audio format.

On Santana's second Arista album, SHAMAN, the formula that turned SUPERNATURAL into a multi-platinum comeback machine is employed again with equally positive results. Carlos and his returning band of semi-regulars play backup to a revolving door of hit-making lead singers. Consequently, the album is a mixed, multi-format bag of great singles, each of which feature lots of Carlos's distinctive lead guitar (placed appropriately high in the mix).
This time out there's even more variety. Apparently not satisfied with simply crossing over, album co-producer Clive Davis ambitiously brokered an album that attempts to snare record buyers of every conceivable type. To this end, SHAMAN includes not only Latin, R&B, rap, and rock tracks, but also features grunge, classical and Nu Metal. Amazingly, the record is much more cohesive than would seem possible, sounding utterly contemporary and radio-ready throughout. Regardless of its disparate elements, SHAMAN is one thing for sure: a stunning pop record.
