Santana made clear that there was no such thing in his music as 'mindless conformity' and this unorthodox mix of Salsa, Rock, Jazz and Blues on Abraxas proved to be quite successful. This album, that due to its variety would be a nightmare to marketeers in the '90s, peaked at #1 in the Billboard Top 200 in the '70s. A classic!

"Afro-Latin grooves and piercing lyrical psychedelic blues guitar."
