Double compilation album on Mexican American musician Carlos A. Santana (Jalisco, 1947), who came to fame during the 60's and 70's with his band and pioneered the fusion of Latin music and rock. He continued acting in subsequent decades and gained his popularity in the '90s. His discography boasts more than 100 million albums worldwide to date.

Juan Carlos Santana - one of the most popular, best-selling authority on functional training and improving the physical form of man. He is President of the Insititute of Human Performance in Boca Raton (Florida) and is known around the world for innovation workshops, scientific approach to training and a simple, affordable and fun submission of taught material.
For his second "solo" album, Carlos Santana used Miles Davis' famed '60s group — Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams — plus members of the current Santana band, for a varied, jazz-oriented session that was one of his more pleasant excursions from the standard Santana sound.
Santana is the primary exponent of Latin-tinged rock, particularly due to its combination of Latin percussion with bandleader Carlos Santana's distinctive, high-pitched lead guitar playing. The group was the last major act to emerge from the psychedelic San Francisco music scene of the 1960s and it enjoyed massive success at the end of the decade and into the early '70s. In 1998, Santana was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The band has earned nine Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy Awards, the latter all in 2000. Carlos also won a Grammy Award as a solo artist in 1988. Santana has sold more than 90 million records worldwide, making them one of the world's best-selling groups of all time.
