Santana, but not as we know it!
************************************
Having been a fan of Carlos and the band since 1973 (having bought all the vinyls) this latest offering of the Great man as back-up guitar (yet again...) to others does nothing to stimulate the diehard fans I'm sure.

Although never a great fan of the Supernatural album I of course warmed to it due to the fact that it's success projected Carlos back to the top (where he belongs). The albums that followed Supernatural (apart from The Shaman, which is a cracker) were a sorry collection of mundane songs with Carlos relegated to back up guitar.

The issue we have with Corazon (this current release) of course is that it is on Carlos' 'own label' so basically he put on there what he wants without someone like Clive Davis or another top label record producer saying to Carlos 'Yeah, okay Carlos, these are all very well and good, but I'm just not going to sell enough albums and no one REALLY wants to listen to a Bob Marley 'cover version' and pay top money for it so you can't that on my label I'm afraid'.

That's what Carlos has avoided here - but as fans of 'Santana' we've just been 'taken for a ride' again haven't we with this drivel(!)

It is indeed commendable that Carlos wants to shed the spotlight onto the artists on these albums and this latest offering is very much 'up that street' but sadly for us we're paying for that 'pleasure' really aren't we?

As a purist Santana fan (not the latter day Santana) I'm still waiting for something to arrive that can compete or sit alongside the first four albums that the band produced.

By The Guardian TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's a pity the virtuosity and artistic brilliance which once inspired John McLaughlin and Miles Davis, and gave to the world fusion classics such as `Caravanserai', `Welcome' and `Borboletta' is now reduced to this.

`Corazon' deploys the guest-star format adopted by so many artists in recent years (from Moby to Morcheeba to the late, great John Lee Hooker). The 12 songs each feature a different singer/guest artist: Samuel Rosa; Vincentico; Javany Xavier/Ximena Munoz; Romeo Santos; Ziggy Marley & Gloria Estefan (believe it or not, Gloria's contribution is one of the album's better moments), and others.

None of these songs are very memorable, let alone destined to be `classics'. The overall impression is of low-brow Latin-American pop music, punctuated with occasional moments of messy production and surprisingly harsh sound. `Oye 2014' is particularly excruciating: stick to the original `Oye Como Va', please.

Carlos is well into middle-age with his sharp edge blunted years ago, but his guitar licks remain unmistakable: if you heard any of these songs booming out of an open car window, the ID of the guitarist would be recognisable immediately. Unfortunately without Carlos' name and `brand' attached to this collection, it would be destined for immediate bargain-bin obscurity.

The packaging looks like a garish advertisement for a down-market Mexican restaurant: primary colours festooned with Aztec motifs in a (what looks like hallucinogen-inspired) 1970s pop art style.

Trying to be positive, a few of these numbers may play well in the salsa clubs and make good party music. Also on the plus side, proceeds from sales will go to the Milagro Foundation, Carlos's charity established in 1998 dedicated to the health and education of underprivileged children, so some small good may result from this depressing and unremarkable dross.

Even though many of the tracks don't work as well as one might hope, there is much beauty and joy in the singing and in the musicianship on this album. Those 'fans' who have expressed their disappointment (even anger) in their Amazon reviews seem more focused on what they want from Carlos, rather than opening their ears and their hearts to what he has to offer.

Carlos' gift manifests itself in many different ways, often in the way he brings out the best in others, and nowhere is this more true than in the stand-out track Una Noche en Napoles, where his acoustic guitar simply frames the sublime vocal collaboration of Lila Downs, Nina Pastori and Soledad with subtlety and grace. Failing to notice this gem of a track means failing to appreciate how Carlos inspires those around him.

La Flaca and Iron Lion Zion are great songs in their original versions, but in both cases the collaborating artists on these new versions add something fresh and joyful; not 'better' than the originals, but incremental and respectful. In both cases, the singing and the playing are superb. In the case of Mal Bicho, I prefer this new version, and judging by the accompanying DVD (The making of Corazon) I suspect that Los Fabulosos Cadillacs may also acknowledge that their original has acquired another dimension with this new recording.

Amor Correspondido appears to be one of those formulaic, super-lightweight creations which old Santana fans love to hate, but it is undeniably sweetly-sung by Diego Torres, and the guitar and drums give it an edge and a passion which prevents it from descending into commercial pop oblivion. When executed so beautifully, formulaic pop songs can be very pleasing. But listen to it in Spanish, not the English version.
