Santana / Shaman

Like its predecessor, “Supernatural,” released in 1999, Santana’s “Shaman” no doubt was an attempt by Clive Davis to replicate the success of the former album.

Sam Rivers - Contours (1965)

Sam Rivers, a veteran jazz multi-instrumentalist, was forty-two years old when he assembled this Blue Note LP, only his second as leader. Unlike his debut Fuchsia Swing Song (1964) which, while adventurous, was unmistakably hard-bop, his approach on Contours is resolutely avant garde and informed by new ideas in jazz and influences absorbed during his time at the Boston Conservatory, where he studied with Armenian-born composer Alan Hovhaness. 313 more words
