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 ;-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Mesmerizing Aug. 12 2001
I have been watching and listening to this DVD all weekend. I am absolutely captivated. The more I watch it the more I like it. Guitar virtuoso Carlos Santana has combined his talents with young musicians of various genres to produce a truly outstanding DVD. The production quality is excellent, the music is great, the performances superb - you'll see a whole troup of talented performers. The opening number actually has Las Vegas style show girls and really sizzles. What a show! I loved it immediately. Santana sizzles too. Be prepared for some of the best guitar you've ever heard. This DVD is technically several notches above most DVDs and takes full advantage of all mediums. There are a lot of bonus materials, not the least of which are four music videos. These may be worth the price alone. Excellent. All considered, this is a masterful production. Top notch music and video and the bonus materials make it a complete DVD package worth buying. Will appeal to a wider audience than just Santana fans, but if you like Santana, definitely get it. This is a DVD worth having.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exhilarating Concert, Great Music. July 11 2001
"Supernatural Live" is one of the great recent concerts I've seen. And on DVD it looks fabulous. This is a great work of art that showcases what good music really is. Carlos Santana remains like Jimi Hendrix one of the enduring guitar gods of our time. Here he performs along with some great artists timeless music. And the concert technically is superb. The sets are beautiful (especially the illusion of stars in the background) and lighting absolutely stunning as well as the editing (I loved the wink to "Woodstock" with the three screen separation when the band performs "Gypsy Queen" and "Oye Como Va"). Santana has obviously come along way from his days in the late 60s and 70s as one of the revolutionary artists in rock. He shows here that age does not matter, it's the ART that counts. His guitar playing is in fact, superior to his previous work now more than ever. The songs here are wonderful too, especially "Love Of My Life" with Dave Matthews, which is a hypnotic love song that sets off atmosphere and mood into the listener. "Smooth" of course, remains the main attraction here and it remains a brilliant and exhilarating blend of rock, salsa and blues, the medley that goes with it, "Dame Tu Amor" is also fun. "Maria Maria" sounds like great street poetry and "Put Your Lights On" is a deep, dark meditation. I loved the duet with Sarah McLachlan of "Angel," which is a beautiful, absolutely moving song. Then there are the independent Santana band performances which are also excellent like "Africa Bamba," which is a great samba and "Migra" which is comic but also has something to say. All in all, "Supernatural Live" is a great experience. Read more ›

Everybody is a purist. Santana at Woodstock is a classic, but this was done in '99 or 2000, and you can never go back. This is the big time. The DVD was edited very well, but my one complaint was that sometimes the switches and cuts were too rapid-fire. It wasn't necessary to continually give all the camera angles screen time. I saw enough shots of the same folks in the audience that I could recognize them on the street easier than members of the band. Santana shared the stage with many artists, but I am glad that Carlos had ample solo time, and I am very glad that he could reach that mass appeal DVD market without watering down the cultural heart and soul of his music. The recent attention given the Martins, the Anthonys, and the Iglesias' of the world is nice, but I am glad one of the "old heads", one who has been consistently producing quality all along, can flex his muscles in the center spotlight to show that he is still here and kicking!
I can only hope that other legends such as Stevie Wonder or Ray Charles, or some of our living Jazz legends can get a triumphant resurgence of popular attention. It would be a shame if they only get their due on retrospectives after they die.

3.0 out of 5 stars So-so sound, performance
Though some parts of the Supernatural DVD are pretty good, I really hoped for more. The sound is crisp, but leaves the bass player almost completely buried. Read more
