Three's Up For Santana
At least three brand new albums on the way from the guitaristThe guitarist, who starts a two year residency at the House Of Blues in Las Vegas in May, says that he plans to make a lot of records while he is not touring, starting with a new instrumental record in May.
"Shape Shifter' is the personal album," he says of the disc that will be released May 15 on his Starfaith label through RED Distribution. "One album will be a Santana band album. The other one is for my family, my new wife (Cindy Blackman) my brother Jorge. I'll bring together my whole family, my new family, to do music in honor of the sacredness of the family. We can start in March, April and since we're only working at night we can do sessions during the day (at Odds On Studio). It's just a balance -- recording and being onstage. We can do three, four, seven albums."
