An incredible guitar hero who has been a source of inspiration for hordes of other incredible guitar heroes, Carlos Santana’s musical range is as wide as it gets. Starting out in Latin rock and funk bands that could almost be described as psychedelic, the Mexican musician has now masterfully fused psychedelic rock and hot funk together and released music under his own name. Accompanied by his brilliant band, he unexpectedly achieved enormous success at Woodstock festival. On this second album, released in September 1970 on CBS records, his sound is multifaceted, contributing to the jazz-rock/jazz-fusion movement that was starting to take hold at the time. His lyrical guitar playing combined with the warm musical tones of his fellow musicians results in incredible tracks such as Black Magic Woman (which is actually a cover of a song Peter Green wrote for Fleetwood Mac), Oye Como Va (a sensual take on a Tito Puente song) as well as Incident At Neshabur (an incredible electronic Latin jazz instrumental that really gets you going before fading into a hushed groove). Somewhere between psychedelic rock, funk fusion, popular blues, contemporary salsa and high-voltage jazz, Abraxas is a pioneering record, an album ahead of its time... © MD/Qobuz

Neo Soul in 10 Albums

In the midst of the 90s when hip-hop was going through its golden age, a revolution within soul music was also underway. With Erykah Badu, D’angelo, Jill Scott and many others, the genre found again its class: an echo of the simplicity and refinement that brought to life the albums of Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield and Roberta Flack. After years in the shadow of the reigning ultra-commercial and soft R&B, the noticeably more underground Neo Soul, or Nu Soul, relit the flame of soul music and returned it to its roots in terms of both composition and lyricism. A brief but highly influential movement.

10 Legends of the Blues

For over a century, blues is still nourishing pop music of all kinds and producing great records. It's time to take a look back at the classics with ten historic blues musicians.

Grunge in 10 Albums

Around thirty years ago, Seattle became the epicenter of the rock scene, largely thanks to grunge music. The grungy, ‘I don’t care’ attitude rose from the ashes of punk, heavy metal and alt-rock, and instantaneously went from an underground movement to a worldwide success. Perhaps too quickly embraced by the very system it rebuffed, it almost became a caricature of itself by the end of the 1990s. Let’s look back at ten albums that defined the genre.
