Carlos Santana


Product Description
Product Details

Promotional Information

Fronting the group that bears his name, his signature soaring guitar as recognizable as any voice, Carlos Santana became an iconic Latin superstar of American rock. But while much has been made of the musical influence of his native cultural heritage, Latin music is far from the only thread woven into Santana's sound.

About the Author

Norman Weinstein is an independent scholar with widely published books and articles in the areas of popular music, poetry and literary criticism, and architecture.


"Though the Santana biography may be targeted at students, don't feel like it is exclusive to them. Weinstein's offering is a good primer for anyone interested in the guitarist's life." - Boise Weekly
"This biography of guitarist Carlos Santana is appropriate for high school students and above. The nine chapters describe the artist's early initiation into music through his family in Mexico, his now legendary Woodstock appearance and subsequent work with Columbia Records, his connection to Indian guru Sri Chinmoy, two marriages, his profound response to the deaths of Miles Davis and Stevie Ray Vaughan in the same year, and Santana's four decades (and counting) of musical output and experimentation." - Reference & Research Book News
