I'm NOT a fan of "jamming" or the jam aesthetic, however, Santana are one of the VERY few who can still pull it off, and mean every note they play. For better or worse. Like someone said earlier, YES, 'Abraxas' is still their best album to this day. A near masterpiece for sure (... ).
Credit Karl Perazzo to much of that. Especially on the Sacred Fire album, which is one album that will always get some play from me.
