Product Description


Like the hit album that inspires its name, Supernatural Live brings journeyman guitarist Carlos Santana back into the mainstream by surrounding him with younger superstars eager to bask in his formidable musical presence. Resuscitating stardom through sheer proximity can translate to forced pairings or superfluous music making, but credit Santana himself with minimizing such missteps. A fusion artist before the term was coined, the erstwhile Mexican street musician long ago extended his technical reach and broadened his stylistic palette by hungrily assimilating different styles of music. Accordingly, he shifts gears easily, whether soloing behind Dave Matthews, trading lines with legendary saxophonist Wayne Shorter, or spicing up a hip-hop excursion with Lauryn Hill.

Santana justifiably taps into the late '90s' breakout for Latin pop, hardly surprising in light of his early identification with Latin-rock via his 1968 recording debut. His early reworking of Tito Puente's classic "Oye Como Va" thus pops up as the set closer, while the concert kicks off with a frenetic, horn-powered "(Da Le) Yaleo," given added spectacle by a swaying corps of lissome female dancers in feathered headgear. Elsewhere, the guitarist hosts a procession of the stars that added their marquee value to the Supernatural album, including Rob Thomas (the massive hit, "Smooth," here performed as a medley with "Dame Tu Amor") and Everlast. But a duet with label colleague Sarah McLachlan on "Angel" yields the concert's only anticlimax--on a ballad built from spare piano and a poignant lyric, Santana's innate taste leaves him little to contribute beyond a delicate tracery of classical guitar.

Production values are excellent, with crisp camera work and sound mixing. A special remote camera, mounted on the neck of Santana's guitar, presents his intricate fretwork in nifty close-ups that are wisely held to just a few songs. --Sam Sutherland

2.0 out of 5 stars Ok Oct. 15 2003
By Roger
This is an ok video. I don't like the songs performed here though. I don't like what Santana is doing lately either. Why is so impossible to get a DVD like "BEST OF MUSIKLADEN 1971" and this DVD is everywhere? Chester Thompson plays so great Hammond Organ solos, but GREGG ROLIE will always be the greatest keyboardist that Santana ever had. And after him, Tom Coster.
I would like to know if Santana is interested in his old fans to release a DVD one day of a concert from 1970, 1971 or the Lotus era. Let's have a balance here. It's being released a video for every pop song lately but nothing from the stuff that makes him what he is and what he will be remembered. The fans he may have now will forget about him with the next "best" thing to come out in fashion, but we won't ;-)

2.0 out of 5 stars A Mixed Bag Nov. 9 2003
I rented this thinking I may buy it. After watching I decided not to buy it. It is a mixed bag with Smooth being the best and the rest of it not that great. This one did not make my top 20 dvd concert collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! March 15 2005
By A Customer
I completely disagree with the previous review. On my system (Arcam DV29 and AVR200, KEF XQ-5 speakers and Pioneer HD4340 Plasma) this DVD was brilliant! Vibrant colours and clarity, awesome sound and most of all a master guitarist at the height of his career. I found myself unable to stop enjoying it well into the wee hours. It has become my new favourite. I listened to it in 2-channel stereo using the Dolby 5.1 output from the DVD. Perhaps the other reviewer had some system incompatibility?

2.0 out of 5 stars Superbad Dec 5 2003
By e-roed
The Music track on the concert is the worst I have ever heard. The DVD does have 4 videos that are great. Not worth the money or the time to watch it. I am surprised the artist let this be released?

3.0 out of 5 stars A nice mix of music Aug. 6 2003
There is a lot of good music on this DVD. And there's no denying that Santana is great at what he does. But he is not at his best here.
He brings out a string of guest musicians, whom he does nothing more than accompany with some sporadic and terse guitar runs. He doesn't really seem to get into the performances at all.
The performance is simply Santana's failed attempt to recapture his heyday.
Still, it's worth having if you're a Santana fan. He could have left out the R&B and hip hop pieces and it would have made for a much better compilation. But much of the music is fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best April 17 2003
By A Customer
If you have a good 5.1 system turn up the volume and enjoy one of the best DVD disc on the market today. I enjoyed most of the artists appearing on stage with Santana and a couple I skipped over, but all in all it is a winner. The music videos included with the DVD pale by comparison to the live performance. The filming is execellent, rarely do you see cameras in the background, every scene is lighted perfectly and the focus sharp and crisp. The images flow seemlessly together with outstanding sound quality throughout. In the end I was left with a feeling that Santana was not only an great guitar play but more importantly a very humble man, always giving all he had while always giving credit and thanks to those around him on stage. That is something you cannot get from a quick 4 minute music video.
