EDITORS’ NOTES

Playing a starring role in the evolution of both Latin rock and pop, Carlos Santana has crafted an immediately identifiable sound through an ever-morphing fusion of blues, R&B, and spiritual jazz. On Woodstock-era landmarks like “Oye Como Va” and the darkly majestic “No One to Depend On,” he rips short, piercing bursts of fiery guitar over slithering, lowrider funk syncopation, salsa-sourced percussion, and Gregg Rolie's woozy organ. Shifting into a more melodic style in the late '90s and beyond, he conquered radio pop with deliciously slinky numbers like “Smooth” and “The Game of Love.”
