Santana and his band are worth the price of admission alone but add Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, John McLaughlin(Santana's mentor back in the 70's), Wayne Shorter, Ravi Coltrane plus Stevie Winwood from Traffic fame, and a collection of wonderful female vocalists and you have one of the very best concert DVD's in a long time. The people attending this concert at the Montreux Jazz Festival saw a history making performance.
Add to this, the camera work was excellent and the sound spot-on. The selections of songs were very eclectic, with pices ranging from, John Lennon, Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, Marvin Gaye, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Harry Bellafonte, and of course Santana. Often, when you get too many front-line musicians on the stage together, it can sound like a train wreck but that never happens here. There seems to be a real sense of symbiosis, all the pieces fall together perfectly.
If you want to see Santana perform his more popular songs get, "Supernatural Live" or the "Santana Live By Request" DVD's.
However, if you want to see "real performers" performing at the highest level, playing songs that inspire them, while having a great time, get this DVD.
If you like the jazz-phase of Santana, then I cannot comment. However if you were looking for "Evil Woman", "Oyo como va", etc. then you won't find it here. This is not classic Santana. That's what I wanted but this DVD does not deliver that.
Let me point anyone who has a nice hi-def setup and is into classic rock to Heart - Live in Seattle and The Eagles Farewell Tour #1, both 5 star HD productions...and the artists are true to their roots and are perfect and professional.
I wonder if all the copies fail to work.

I'm s big Santana fan who was expecting a bit more Santana. The track listing was initially intriguing to me; how would Carlos Santana interpret the banana boat song? He didn't. Read morePublished on April 30, 2008 by R. Rojas
The list of performers is long and impressive but the performances were boring and without Santana's groove. Very, very dissapointing.Published on January 24, 2008 by M. Gottwig
