Pier Six Pavilion
August 26, 2015
This was my second Santana show of the week. The setlists were almost identical except for Sacalo, which replaced a two song instrumental interlude. Salvador Santana's three songs were better received in Baltimore, but still a bit of a disappointment.
Just before Europa, Santana identified a woman in the front row who has been coming to many of his shows, and gave her a guitar. Yes, I do wish it would have been me!
For Santana fans who yearn for fewer "hits" in the setlist, there is good news on two fronts: Santana is forming "Supernova" with John McLaughlin, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter and his wife Cidndy Blackman on drums. He announced plans to record and then tour.
"Santana IV" has been recorded with members of his original band, with a tour expected next summer.
The sound quality on this is one very nice, so enjoy and play it loud! Samples are included in the comments section.
