VARIOUS Viva Carlos A Supernatural Marathon Celebration
Mascot M7210-2 (2006)

A tribute album to Carlos Santana, so jazz funk and latino rock aplenty with a backing band and each of the 10 tracks a guest guitarist.

Opener 'Se A Cabo' features some shred from Vinnie Moore, it's a well worked track, played smoothly, if the production a little bright.

'Europa' (Jeff Richman) is a slower jazzier affair, a definite MOR feel.

'Jingo' some will recognise, the keyboards working well.

If you like Santana's music or a fan of this kind of fusion shred you'll love this well constructed celebration. But it is just an excuse for self indulgence, for virtuoso jazz fusion shredders to party, something that's probably more fun to play than listen to.

Good, but unless you're a fan approach with caution.
