Editorial Reviews

Santana were founded in the late sixties and came into the spotlight following their appearance at the Woodstock festival in 1969. Their eponymous debut album was released the same year and became a global success, introducing the public to the band's unique blend of latin rhythms and guitar based rock. With legendary guitarist and band leader Carlos Santana at the helm, hit albums and singles followed through the seventies, eighties, nineties and up to the present day. Both Carlos and the band have been frequent visitors to Montreux over the years and in 2011 they presented a stunning concert of their greatest hits, classic album tracks and brilliant cover versions from their debut album right up to 2010 s Guitar Heaven . This is the ultimate Santana live concert and absolutely not to be missed. / Special Guests include Susan Tedeschi, Derek Trucks and Cindy Blackman-Santana / Bonus Features:

Format:DVD
I was first turned on to Santana as a 12 year kid in 1971. I heard Black Magic Woman on the radio and was hooked. Later that year, I received the Santana III album for Christmas. I wore the thing out! I've been following Carlos Santana's career for almost 41 years since those days.

I was ecstatic when I received my copy of Santana Live At Montreux - especially when I saw that it had all the tunes that made me a fan of the Woodstock veteran and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 1998 inductee. I've watched and love Carlos' other DVD's but I must say that Live in Montreux is, by (and so) far, my favorite.

Filmed in high-definition and recorded in DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital 5.1 and LPCM Stereo, the 2-DVD set is a virtual treasure chest contained in a 23-song show lasting over three hours. The show was filmed at the Montreux Jazz Festival in beautiful Montreux, Switzerland, a place as timeless as Santana's music performed on these discs. As Santana says in the interview contained within the set's Bonus Features, the venue and festival is "the concert concerts". Watching the video only rekindled my desire to again visit the beautiful city on "the Lake Geneva shoreline" (to quote Deep Purple).

In addition to Santana and his incredibly tight band serving up crowd favorites as only he (and they) can, he infuses his performance with riffs from iconic songs from the day. To me, it symbolizes not only how interwoven the music is into the soundtrack of our minds and youth, but also just how intertwined Carlos is into the musical fabric of society.

The aforementioned interview with Carlos is spectacular. Chris Cowey asks many of the same kinds of questions that I would ask.

1.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS NOT SANTANA!!!!!! March 2, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
I consider myself a life long Santana fan having been one since Santana's first album came out but what he has done to these songs is just plain WRONG. And if you are a true Santana fan, you know this is true. I have been a drummer over 30 years and I owe my interest in drums to the Santana Band and their very first album. First of all, what's with the horns? The horns he used on Santana III were cool but ever since Supernatural came out they add absolutely nothing to the Santana "sound". They make the songs sound like cheap imitations of the originals. And what's with the "movie" musical interludes on some of the songs? I want to hear the songs they way they should go, they don't have to be note per note but....I don't need any Clint Eastwood movie music, etc music in your show. Black Magic Woman, Open Invitation, etc ARE NOT DUETS!!!!! Tony Lindsay is the ONLY lead vocalist that should be on that stage. He is a true vocalist and is the best singer you have had since Alex Ligertwood. I mean listen to him...he always sings like it's going to be his swan song. And last I remember wasn't Open Invitation a rock tune??? Couldn't tell by this concert. The Santana band I remember didn't need guest musicians or singers to play on their albums much less their concerts. The percussion section gets drowned out by guess who....the percussion. Raul has the right idea....congas, maybe a gong. Karl, all you need is a set of timbales, couple of cowbells, cymbals, maybe a few effects. That's all "Chepito" and Orestes Vilato needed. It's all about quality, not quantity. Hell, I am going to confuse your setup with Terry Bozzio's setup. Let's see how many different percussion instruments I can fit into this song or how many times I can hit some percussion intrument in this song....WRONG!!! Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Santana: Live at Montreux 2011 October 1, 2013
By D. Cook
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Great audio and video here on Blu-Ray. Totally loved this concert performance except for one, and easily skipped over, part. At the beginning, for some God only knows reason, Carlos Santana lets one of his singers do a Rap cover of AC/DC's Back in Black. I'm seeing this and thinking to myself, s#*t !!! Have I just flushed my money down the toliet to see Rap covers of Santana songs too?? Thankfully, no. After that waste, some real, authentic music ensues for your listening pleasure. Just use the skip function on the remote and you're good to go.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Your Santana You have Come to Love April 9, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
first the drum solo by his wife, the biggest waste of time and none music portion .. missing are many of his solid backing band thru the years like keyboardist Chester Thomas and it shows as the musicians are merely copying that of the valued missed players .. the blue ray has its moments, you cant fail as a professional musician as he to pull off something of value .. there is some value to the old tunes and some to the new but it seems cheesy Vegas show like and going thru the paces and not the soul he had for many many concerts thru the years... great pic but the sound suffers on the man himself, wheres the biting guitar ? .. buy it, yes if your a long time Santana fan like I but get a discounted used version, then your money will be well spent

3.0 out of 5 stars Not up to par March 17, 2012

I have been into Santana forever but have to say this concert does not have the energy that I've come to expect from Carlos, I feel that the Supernatural concert blows this show away.

I didn't care for the rap song or the way all the old songs had unessasary imbelishments
the old music was not true to the originals.

1.0 out of 5 stars Video
A solid line runs through video almost the entire concert.....excellent picture quality though and great (hd).
This is why i gave this 1 star no other reason.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Quality Great DTS sound!
Only drawback is the songs are sort-of hard to navigate through on your blu-ray player because they are mixed together within the concert. But hey, that is how the concert is! Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Over-rated!
Carlos Santana is a WAY over-rated, blues-based, box-scale guitarist, who doesn't know how to incorporate other instruments into his music, at least on this release. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff!
Loved it, but Santana (as always) gives his band as much of the lime-light as he takes. I wish this were not the case because I want to hear him make that guitar cry - like NOBODY... Read more

It was good, love Santana but the gratuitous drum solo that he afforded to his wife, Cindy Blackman was over the top, a real detractor from the overall movie. Read more
