Santana
Tuesday, July 4


The thing about Carlos Santana is that he's had such a long and full career—which includes ten Grammy wins, countless formal recognitions of his genius, and five decades of rich and diverse musical output—that it's easy to sleep on him as one of the best of his generation still doing it. Not only are his singular guitar chops, which have consistently kept him in the electric guitar G.O.A.T. discussion over the years, still intact, but so is his groundbreaking knack for composition that fuses jazz, rock, and blues stylings with Afro-Latin rhythms and structures. In his esteemed career, Santana, with his eponymous band, as a solo artist, and in work with a staggeringly diverse array of talented collaborators, has released more than forty studio albums and a slew of live albums that document, in vivid color, exactly why you'll want to be at one of Santana's two San Antonio shows. $60.00-$225.00, 8:00pm, The Majestic, 224 E Houston St, (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com. — JC
