Short article

http://ultimateclassicrock.com/carlos-santana-readies-shape-shifter-instrumental-album/

Official Website

http://www.santana.com/

This album is mainly instrumental and focused on the lead guitar, Carlos says. Nice to hear some organ in the title track (which you can stream at the website, 2nd link) but the production is perhaps a tiny bit too clean and the song doesn't seem to break any molds, but I'm still interested anyway - this one is dedicated to North American Indians, hopefully an element of world music comes in.

There was an amusing (mis-quote?) in the article:

"As you know, the people in New Zealand collectively agreed to give an apology to the Aborigines in Australia"

The album seems to be released next month somehow or other. And I wish it is the music that "Mr.Szabo" was given to Gabor Szabo.

Apparently it won't be that much of an instrumental album... the Amerindian chants are vocals in my book, but it sounds promising, especially when he namedropped Caravanserai
It could be the best thing he's done since the 70's
my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicted musicians to crazy ones....
