Longtime friend and promoter Bill Graham joins Devadip Carlos in the
production of 1981's zestily-titled opus, ZEBOP. The material makes an even
navigation between radio pop and Santana's signature brand of edgy Latin
rock. While Carlos' playing reaches a keen clarity throughout, nothing lets the
fire loose quite like the album's instrumental numbers. Found on the previous
albums MARATHON and THE SWING OF DELIGHT, sessionman Alex
Ligertwood is again the vocalist of the hour, turning in a strong and soulful
Santana is always associated with drawing inspiration from many corners,
and ZEBOP is surely no exception to that tradition. The band turns Cat
Stevens' "Changes" into a salubrious piece of radio-friendly folk-pop. The
brief instrumental "Primera Invasion" certainly has the feel of a mounting
attack, with piercing stacks of Carlos' overdubbed guitar riffs that quickly
segue into the rolling synth-pop of "Searchin'." The upbeat hand-clap rock of
"Winning" makes it the shiniest outing on ZEBOP, with a hearty, harmonized

Carlos makes mincemeat of "I Love You Much Too Much" with his bone-chilling
ZEBOP, the 18th release from legendary guitarist Carlos Santana, features
12 tracks including "Winning."
