Monday's Music Moves Me and Blogging A to Z: Santana

It's a twofer post today. I am doing the A to Z Challenge where you blog based on a specific letter of the alphabet through the month of April. Today's letter is S.

It is also Monday's Music Moves Me and today is a freebie which really makes it easy to intertwine the two.

I have been doing my A to Z relating it to my Mom. The musician I am going to focus on is Santana because my Mom and I went to see him at Wolftrap it was a co-bill with  Jeff Beck. (I went the following day too!)

It was 1995 and her is Santana performing "Jinga" in Peru that year.

Santana "Smooth" with Rob Thomas.

No not all songs from the same year. This is just a collection to enjoy.

One of my all time favorite Santa song is "Winning"

Since the anniversary of Woodstock is coming here is a flashback. Santana performing "Soul Sacrifice" at the festival.

I could do this all day but I know you have other blogs to visit. It was a fun concert which I enjoyed with my Mom.

Santana is a great use for the letter 'S' and for your 4M mewsic picks. Thanks for sharing the dance floor with us today!

I don't listen to Santana as much as I did back in the seventies. I still like the music, but I don't have many Santana albums. In 1975 I saw Carlos Santana in concert at the Civic Auditorium in Knoxville, Tn. He was on the same bill with Eric Clapton and another well known guitarist who I now cannot remember--Leslie West maybe? It was quite an epic concert that I think I paid $6 to see. Concerts were so affordable back then.

I bought the Black Magic Woman album when it came out and have enjoyed several other of Santana's hits. One night, in a motel room, spouse and I saw a documentary on Santana, which was quite interesting. Gresat choice for both music and the letter "S", Mike.

Always luvin' me some Santana my friend. My husband's friend plays one of his songs and I always tell him he's spot on, but NO ONE plays it like Santana. Great job my friend.

Santana is excellent combining the rock with blues but also Latino music and, that your mom loved going to see them
