Havana Moon

The third Carlos Santana solo album marks a surprising turn toward 1950s rock & roll and Tex-Mex, with covers such as Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love" and Chuck Berry's title song. Produced by veteran R&B producers Jerry Wexler and Barry Beckett, the album features an eclectic mix of sidemen, including Booker T. Jones of Booker T & the MG's, Willie Nelson, and the Fabulous Thunderbirds. Havana Moon is a light effort, but it's one of Santana's most enjoyable albums, which may explain why it was also the best-selling Santana album outside the group releases in ten years.

Willie, Fabulous Thunderbirds (with Jimmie Lee Vaughn - Stevie Ray's older brother - on guitar, Kim Wilson on harmonica/vocals), Booker T (of Booker T and the MG's Green Onions fame) on keyboards, Carlos on guitar - WOW! A fun cd with a lot for everyone. All the songs with the T Birds are great especially the second song of the CD. This instrumental was the opening song played by a very popular DJ (John Dillion)in Dallas as he started his show every afternoon on the classic rock station. It is also the opening song played by a very popular rockin' band in Dallas (three lead guitars) - the Stratoblasters! The song with Willie is my theme song for whenever I travel to Mexico! Willie and the T Birds (the Texas connection) with Carlos and Booker T - great music!
