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. He won 10 Grammy Music Awards and 3 Latin Grammy. The pervasive tone of his guitar is one of the most recognizable sounds of popular rock music.
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.
Shakuhachi players of old followed the path of ichion-jobutsu, or “enlightenment in a single tone.” The spiritual element of the simple bamboo flute with its notched mouthpiece and five fingerholes is essential to its existence, and part of what led Henry Cowell to refer to it as “the universal flute.” Ralph Samuelson’s album shares that name, and presents remarkably evocative works for the shakuhachi by American composers.
