Overview

Over 30 years after Carlos Santana released his first album, he enjoyed the greatest success of his career with Supernatural, in which the gifted guitarist and his band joined forces with some of pop's leading hitmakers, exposing his fiery fusion of blues, jazz, rock, and Latin sounds to a whole new audience. Santana: Supernatural Live is a live video that captures Santana and his band on stage, playing hits both new and old with special guests Rob Thomas (from the group Matchbox 20), Lauryn Hill, Dave Matthews, Everlast, Sarah McLachlan, and Wayne Shorter. Songs include "Smooth," "Oye Como Va," "Make Somebody Happy," "Maria Maria," "Do You Like the Way," and "Africa Bamba."

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Greg Fagan
Like a Latino Bonnie Raitt, Carlos Santana rose from middling veneration to out-and-out Grammy superstardom on the strength of his multi-platinum Supernatural album. Those who are only familiar with the guitarist/bandleader from his hit CD, though, are in for a treat with the new video release Supernatural Live. For as longtime fans of his silky smooth yet searing sound know, "live" Santana is an even more wonderful thing than canned Santana. Like the album, Supernatural Live is an all-star affair, with performing support from Lauryn Hill, Dave Matthews, Carter Beauford, Sarah McLachlan, the Product G&B, Cee-Lo (of Goodie Mob), plus Wayne Shorter, Chester Thompson, and Rob Thomas. The band delivers spirited versions of eight of the CD's 13 tracks (missing are "Corazon Espinado," "Wishing It Was," "Faro," "Calling," and "Primavera"). In place of the missing songs are wonderful versions of Santana favorites from the rock legend's stellar past, including a "Gypsy Queen"/"Oye Como Va" medley that is -- as always -- an exhilarating blast. The DVD adds such goodies as behind-the-scenes footage, short interviews, and a featurette, but the main draws remain Carlos Santana, his drum-tight band, and music that gets you moving.
