Abraxas Pool

"Abraxas Pool"

The Story
"Abraxas Pool" features the unmistakable blend of Latin percussion, soaring guitar, hard driving keyboards and powerful vocals, reuniting original members of the Santana band. Manning overdriven, sustained guitar is Neal Schon who trades off with keyboardist/organist Gregg Rolie on a number of tracks. Instrumental cuts such as "Szabo" and "Cruzin'" throb with heavy percussion and burning fretwork. Carlos himself hasn't put out as heavy material such as this in a number of years. "Abraxas Pool" is a must for Santana and early Journey fans, and others who can't get enough of the combination of Latin rhythms with blazing guitar.
