    I liked the concert video. Shrieve was especially good.

    Ya, Shrieve is the "youngster" of the band, at least from the original band.
    A buddy of mine from California, his cousin plays timbales (Karl Parrazo).
    Good people Santana is... :agree:

    I agree. I absolutely adore Santana the band and think Carlos is a legend. Africa Speaks was excellent, I loved IV and Supernatural was a great comeback album, although he flogged the concept to death over the two subsequent albums.

    But I’m sorry… for me, sticking bongos and guitar licks all over A White Shade of Pale is like drawing glasses and a moustache on the Mona Lisa; I really didn’t like it. Think this is one Santana album I will be passing on.

    The Santana concert I saw in July, 2019, was one of the best concerts I have attended in 50 years of concert going. I will approach any new Santana album with hope and positive thoughts.

    Was interested to see Chris Stapleton sings on one of the new Santana songs.

    Yawn. Really, Whiter Shade of Pale Carlos? Rob Thomas redux? Just sad. For a guy who has written and performed such amazing muscic to be reduced to this hurts. I was really excited for Santana IV and mostly liked it...can't say I'm much of a Neal Schon fan (post the first two Journey albums). Since that I usually try to give a listen but nothing has caught my ear since. I'd rather see him hook up with David Hidalgo and Louie Perez and push some boundries. That would be real.

    Not to hijack the thread, but what do Santana fans think of this track from Supernatural? I'm biased being a DMB fan but damn I think this is a killer track. Smooth as hell (sorry for the semi-pun).
