Santana is the debut studio album by American Latin rock band Santana. It was released on August 30, 1969. Over half of the album's length is composed of instrumental music, recorded by what was originally a purely free-form jam band.

Santana is the third studio album by the American rock band Santana. The band's second self-titled album, it is often referred to as III or Santana III to distinguish it from the band's 1969 debut album. The album was also known as Man with an Outstretched Hand, after its album cover image.

Bassist David Brown and percussionist Michael Carabello both left, and during the recording of the fourth album their roles were taken over by various musicians. Meanwhile keyboardist & vocalist Gregg Rolie was starting to fall out with Carlos Santana himself. The end result was a very different album from the first three, not really representing the sound of a unified band. Instead it came across more as a loose jam session between a large cast of musicians, with the band's jazz leanings well to the front, and only three vocal songs among seven instrumentals.

Santana is a music studio album recording by SANTANA (Jazz ive Rock) released in 1969 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. This was the third Santana album I purchased (in 1972 while I was 13). The line-up here is one of the best ever (only surpassed with the addition of Neal Schon for Santana III and Caravanserai). This album is definitely the most afro-latino record of the band. Percussions are fantastic and the work of Greg Rolie on the keys has a major influence on the band.

From: 'Santana' (1969). Santana's first big hit - it climbed to the Top 10 around the same time the Woodstock movie broke the band - was one of two cover songs on their self-titled debut album (see No. 7 on our list of the Top 10 Santana Songs for the other one). But like most of the songs they covered, "Evil Ways" was a relatively obscure number before Santana transformed it into a monster rock hit complete with room-shaking organ and guitar solos.

In 2014, the "classic" line-up reunited for Santana IV (2016) and the group continue to perform and record. The band will headline at Woodstock 50 in August 2019, fifty years after their first appearance. Santana is one of the best-selling groups of all time with 4. million certified albums sold the US, and an estimated 100 million sold worldwide. The album was possibly the most successful since Santana III, achieving 2x platinum in the US, and being the first album since 1974's Borboletta, to break the top 10 in the UK. It was characterized by a stylistic shift for the band, as it contained heavier influences from the more conventional sound of the group's early work, while still maintaining the experimental sound of their last few albums.

Santana’s music is contemporary, but it comes from a tradition and part of what has provoked a curious reluctance on the part of some hard rock fans to accept Santana is that tradition. This is music to dance to, but it is music that shrieks for more advanced, dexterous and imaginative dancing than some of the freeform body motion that rock dancing has accepted. It is also music that asks for a certain kind of emotional abandon for maximum enjoyment. You don’t just listen to Santana; you get inside the rhythm, play it in your head or your body and participate. Their new album goes right along with their previous ones in its content except that, for me anyway, it is more consistent. Prior Santana albums have had amazing things for me but also some downers. This LP stays there all the way.

Anyway, for his latest album, Carlos Santana decided to go back to his roots, round up all those players again, and see what happened. The biggest question to be answered before pushing play on this album naturally is: Does the Santana band capture that same magic that propelled them to superstardom on Abraxas or Santana III? To an extent, they actually do, but the music here doesn’t come close to measuring up to the intense energy or loose spirit of the group’s earliest releases. And yet you can’t deny the chemistry that flows through this collection of musicians
