This is a real treat for fans of the jazzier side of santana ,and especially not to be missed by anyone interested in the earlier work of john mclaughlin .The concert is loosely based around the 1973 album love devotion and surrender , plus several tracks that fit very well into that style of devotional music(mainly tunes by pharoah sanders and miles davis plus two tracks by tony williams lifetime), there is also a medley of tunes by dylan,led zep and a jig , which are different to say the least(its quite odd hearing mclaughlin jamming in his inimitable style to stairway to heaven).The band are on excellent form ,with two drummers , including carlos new wife
Cindy blackwood ,also two bassists . Dave matthews on keyboards is very versatile getting the authentic sounds to accompany each tune and playing with a lot of enthusiasm(lets hope he will influence any new music by santana who have been a bit flat recently(except for when they play live).The concert is dedicated to Claude of the montreal jazz festival , who organised the concert , and who obviously genuinely loved these musicians(he died this year apparently)and he is invited onto the stage for the last track to jam on his blues harmonica.As well as being great music and interesting to watch ,this is also a very happy concert and everybody seems to be enjoying it ,especially Carlos who acts as the band conductor as they onviously did ,nt have lots of rehearsal time.this is a great dvd and will be quite educational to new fans of santana who may think santana are a pop band with guitar.

This Blu Ray is worth the money just to see John Mclaughlin revisit the two Tony Williams Lifetime numbers, Vuelta Abajo & Vashkar, ably supported by a band who are pretty much on fire he plays some great stuff. The Life Devine is a great way to start the concert & the accoustic numbers are also highlights. Elsewhere it can tend to slip into blues by numbers but the highs far outweigh the lows.

If you like John and Carlos this DVD will neither suprise nor disappoint you - it's the same high class music and humanity that you'd expect from our intrepid heroes. Carlos's Band is just a wonder - so many flavours - just like your best ever curry. A special word of appreciation for Dennis Chambers - he's got style class and magnaminity!

Finally this historic performance is available via the great Live At Montreux series. Whenever these two guitar maestros and searching souls meet a special kind of magic ensures.

And here they are supported by a stellar cast mainly from Santana's regular band although McLaughlin bassist Etienne M'Bappe definitely plays a prominent role. On drums Cindy Blackman Santana and Dennis Chambers drives things forward with power and finesse together with conga legend Raul Rekow. And 'new' Santana keyboard player David Matthews really impresses with both versality and inventiveness.

Even though the repertoire comprises 4 tracks from the classic "Love, Devotion, Surrender" album the atmosphere is far from their short legendary tour of 1973. Less fiery guitar-battles and more subdued, but sublime interplay. Among the highlights in this very diverse set is 2 tracks from Lifetime propelled by Cindy (as in her excelent 'tribute' bandSpectrum Road) and a rare chance to hear McLaughlin visiting his avantgardish (acidy) past. And some sublime acoustic guitar duets.

As must be the case with a 'rehearsed jamsession' like this there are some miscues and warts but that only add to the charm of this highly recommendable concert that really lives up to it's name, inviting us to spiritual and musical illumination.

They only did one album together 40 years ago and most of it gets a run in this great show. It is 2 hours of guitar riffs being traded off each other and no complaints there. If anything John McLaughlin works harder than Carlos Santana and steals the show but they are both great.

I am overwhelmed of this musicians, and play The BD very often. First I will admit I have never (for more than 40 years) understood Jazz, and didnt like it? They say this is Jazz, so now Ive become a Jazz-fantast! The ever dark haired Carlos, and nice white haired John (ebony and ivory) plays guitar so lovely that I am glued to the performance from start to end of concert.

And its a pure performance, not a show (thank someone for that), no artificial effects, no smoke, no lazer lights. Only marvellous musicians performing. Carlos and John are not only playing music through the concert, they are actually conversating by the guitars! Carlos looks like to chew a gum through the whole concert, as if he did not even had to concentrate for the task (drummer Dennis the same), experience is visible in a new dimension? And the second drummer (or first) Cindy is a firework on stage.

Audio is exellent, picture also. I just love the concert, hope you do the same!
