A Collaborator's Dream

In essence, Supernatural paired Santana with a host of -- mostly younger -- artists and producers. (Though Santana and Davis produced the entire album, the individual songs were produced by a host of people. See list below for details.) The final product was, indeed, supernatural.

From the hip-hop/rap raw energy of "Maria Maria" to the Latin-pop drive of "Smooth," featuring Rob Thomas, the passionate riffs of overture "(Da Le) Yaleo" to the bluesy coda of "The Calling," (with Eric Clapton), Supernatural struck just the right chord at the right time. More than any album in it's decade, it crossed generational and stylistic lines with an ease that seemed almost magical.

Effects of Supernatural

In the ensuing decade, Carlos Santana, now in his sixties, has enjoyed a career renessaince for which most artists would give their eyeteeth -- at any age. His next three albums, Shaman, All That I Am, and Ultimate Santana, while not recreating the phenomenal success of Supernatural, have kept the Santana sound alive for at least three generations of listeners.

Commercially, his branded fragance and clothing lines have placed him in the pantheon with celebrities that transcend their particular idiom to pervade popular culture.

His new found visibility has also allowed him to increase the awareness and good works of The Milagro Foundation, founded in 1998 with his then wife Deborah Santana. The Milagro Foundation "benefits under-represented and underpriveledged children around the world."

Quite an accomplishment for a guitar player who -- as a young boy in Tijuana -- used to solicit pay for his music with the entreaty, "Song, mister; 50 cents a song." 50 cents a song indeed!
