Saturday Afternoon Santana

A few Santana videos for a little mellow (well, except for the last one - it'll make you get up off your posterior and move) Saturday music - don't bother reading the comments from the masses - while some are enlightened, some are just pontificating idiots parading their stupidity. Just turn up your speakers and enjoy! (This is actually the end of Santana's Supernatural Live DVD - with guest performers - stats with a quick photo shoot - then starts playing in a mellowish vibe with the guest line-up Carlos makes a few comments that are the true and the heart of it all - then transcends in jamming, riffing and rocking - quite cool). (Samba Pa Ti - from Sacred Live - Live in Mexico. Interspersed location shots) ] (Somewhere in Heaven - abslutely beautiful - has some interspersed images of Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis - soothing) (Live version of the previous cut - played at the 25th anniversary of Woodstock in 1994 - twice as long at 10 minutes and it gets the second part the previous cut doesn't have. There is some technically difficuly at the end of the cut so be forewarned. Again, will sooth and rock your soul while you watch an amazing performance by the master - he also does some riffing which is cool and the joy on his face is why music speaks to the soul) (Africa Bamba - 2006 - ad will pop up during this video- just close the ad and go on enjoying Carlos) (Samba Pa Ti - Live in Crotia - another version - stripped down stage and great closeups of Carlos - very nice) (first time I saw him play and though a mere lass I was instantly hooked ... and remain so)
