Santana Sunday

Later today, I’m going to give my impressions of the latest Santana album, Santana IV. But right now, as part of my instrumental Sunday Morning Grooves, I’m going to feature a track called “Sueños”, a guitar ballad from the new album.

Today I’m having a mini-tribute to the band Santana by featuring some songs from the new album. In the later post, I’ll have a couple more songs from the album. But for now, I’m just going to let this sit here. It’s a beautiful song, somewhat similar in feel to “Samba Pa Ti” from Abraxas.

You know what…I think I’ll put that song here too.

Hope you enjoy the guitar ballads. So it’s Santana x 2 for the Morning Groove for Sunday, April 17, 2016. And as always, thanks for reading and listening.

  1. Hello T. Pity me, I couldn’t open the first song and can’t find it on the internet but I’ll check out Itunes later. Samba Pa Ti on the other hand is definitely one of my favorites. I’ll look forward to listening to the new Album. Enjoy your Sunday! 😀

    1. I’m sorry about the video Chevvy. Good day to you-I hope you can find that song, it is really beautiful.

      I love Carlos Santana’s playing in just about any context, but I didn’t really like those albums he did that featured him playing behind a bunch of different singers. I preferred the sound of his band.

      1. He’s an interesting story. Playing with them at Woodstock at like 15. He’s one of the best guitarists ever, but I think the fact that he was in Journey and their “pop” sound get him somewhat lost in the discussion of best ever. He certainly is one of the best ever.

      2. Absolutely—Journey was a fine band. They did what they did, and did it well. But it wasn’t like when he played with Santana, that’s a different kind of band. Playing with that band freed him to explore what he could play and how to play it. Different styles, but good results for both.
