Shape Shifter

by Santana
Shape Shifter by Santana
Released: May 2012
Label: Starfaith
In terms of theme and sound, the nearly all-instrumental Shape Shifter is Carlos Santana's attempt to recapture some of the power of his early-1970s peak, back when the guitarist turned the hippie world upside down with his unique amalgam of acid rock, Latin funk and electric spirit jazz. Considering the Woodstock icon is now in his mid-60s, don't expect full-blown fire music here; "Soul Sacrifice" was a long time ago. That said, tunes such as "Dom" and the organ-heavy title track should please those longtime fans who never took to the Billboard-friendly pop of either Supernatural or Shaman.
