Santana to release 'Shape Shifter' May 15
Carlos Santana plans to release a new solo instrumental album entitled, Shape Shifter, on May 15. He says, "It's for people who love 'Caravanseri,' 'Europa,' 'Samba Pa Ti' -- the instrumentals. A lot of people miss hearing the Mexican just playing his guitar. That's a language that's better than Swahili or English or Spanish. I haven't done one in a long time." The guitar legend also kicks off a two-year engagement in Las Vegas at the House of Blues beginning on May 1. Tickets for about 45 of the scheduled shows go on sale tomorrow (March 3).
