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.

1972: The Album’s Golden Year

1972 was a monumental year for albums. From the The Rolling Stones to Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin to Big Star, there was an abundance of artists releasing career-defining and redefining music. Here we make our case for ten of the best.

Tropicália: the Story of a Brazilian Revolution

In the late 1960s, a group of young Brazilian artists rose up against the ruling military junta by fusing local popular music, rock and avant-garde. Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Os Mutantes and their friends invented tropicália, one of the most original musical adventures of the 20th century.
