It no longer feels like yesterday (it was 1999, people) that guitar impresario Carlos Santana kicked his career into a new gear with the collaborative album Supernatural. Sure, Rob Thomas had plenty to do with it, but the Santana legacy is alive in a way that has grown past a crusty classic-rock slate. In May, Santana released Shape Shifter, a mostly instrumental trek that'll be fuel for a whole lot of air-guitar riffing from the audience. This is the opening date of Santana's tour, so it should be a rapturous start.
