Santana IV is the twenty-fourth studio album (thirty eighth album overall) by American rock band Santana, released in April 2016.
The album reunited most of the surviving members from the early 1970s lineup of the band (including Carlos Santana, Gregg Rolie, Neal Schon, Mike Carabello and Michael Shrieve) and was the first time that the quintet had recorded together since 1971’s Santana III. Timbalist José Areas was not invited to participate. Joining these “core” members were later Santana members Karl Perazzo (percussion) and Benny Rietveld (bass), with vocalist Ronald Isley guesting on two cuts. Santana IV included 16 new tracks written and produced by the band.

Africa Speaks is the twenty-fifth studio album (thirty ninth album overall) by the band Santana, released on Concord Records on June 7, 2019.
The album was produced during a 10-day recording session by Rick Rubin at Rubin’s Shangri La Studios in Malibu, during which they recorded 49 songs. Rubin and Carlos Santana used an eight-piece band (which included Santana’s wife, Cindy Blackman Santana, on drums).

Two albums featured this evening. Santana’s Abraxas and Steely Dan’s Can’t Buy A Thrill.
Santana’s debut for Concord records is pretty low key: an EP containing three new songs, along with edits of two of those tracks. It’s intended as an amuse bouche before Global Revelation, an album he recorded with Rick Rubin, but this EP contains none of Rubin’s signature back-to-basics moves. Recorded with producer Narada Michael Walden, it’s slick and shimmering, existing just on the margins of jazz fusion. The presence of bassist Ron Carter on “Lovers from Another Time” underscores this connection, but the EP opens with “Do You Remember Me,” ten minutes of jamming that’s too mellow to be called epic. Santana picks up a bit with “In Search of Mona Lisa,” which bops to a Bo Diddley beat and contains the only sung narrative of the three songs. It sticks out a bit like a sore thumb compared to the grace of “Lovers from Another Time,” which benefits from its glossiness, making Santana and Carter appear to glide. For this track alone, In Search of Mona Lisa is worth a listen, but the other two songs are amiable enough to not be a distraction.

Can’t Buy a Thrill is the debut studio album by the American rock band Steely Dan, released in November 1972 by ABC Records. It was produced by Gary Katz and written by band members Donald Fagen and Walter Becker. The album was recorded at The Village Recorder in Los Angeles.
Abraxas is the second studio album by Latin rock band Santana, released in September 1970.
Santana is an American Latin rock band formed in San Francisco, California in 1966 by Mexican-American guitarist Carlos Santana. The band first came to widespread public attention when their performance of “Soul Sacrifice” at Woodstock in 1969 provided a contrast to other acts on the bill. This exposure helped propel their first album, also named Santana, into a hit, followed in the next two years by the successful Abraxas and Santana III.
In the years that followed, lineup changes were common. Carlos Santana’s increasing involvement with guru Sri Chinmoy took the band into more esoteric music, though never quite losing its initial Latin influence.
In 1998, Santana was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, with Carlos Santana, Jose “Chepito” Areas, David Brown, Gregg Rolie, Mike Carabello and Michael Shrieve being honored.
The band has earned nine Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy Awards, the latter all in 2000. Carlos also won a Grammy Award as a solo artist in 1988. Santana has sold more than 90 million records worldwide, making them one of the world’s best-selling groups of all time. In 2013, Santana announced a reunion of the classic line-up for a new record, Santana IV, which was released in April 2016. They are tied for having the most won Grammys in one night. – Wikipedia

Carlos Augusto Alves Santana (born July 20, 1947) is a Mexican and American musician who became famous in the late 1960s and early 1970s with his band, Santana, which pioneered a fusion of rock and Latin American music. The band’s sound featured his melodic, blues-based guitar lines set against Latin and African rhythms featuring percussion instruments such as timbales and congas not generally heard in rock music. Santana continued to work in these forms over the following decades. He experienced a resurgence of popularity and critical acclaim in the late 1990s. In 2003 Rolling Stone magazine listed Santana at number 20 on their list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. He has won 10 Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy Awards.
