Billboard Album Review: Santana Indulges His Experimental Side on 'Corazón'

By Leila Cobo
Billboard Magazine

The best instrumentalists don’t just play — they speak. Instruments can move freely without language or diction hampering them, but that also makes it more challenging to deliver a message or establish an identity. Yet the sound of Carlos Santana’s guitar is unmistakable: angular melodies with a signature piercing tone, easy to distinguish no matter the genre, from rock to Latin to jazz.

No wonder that “Corazón,” billed as Santana’s first Latin album, is all about that guitar, despite boasting star vocal collaborators from around the world. The instrument’s leading role lets “Corazón” be much more than what would typically qualify as Latin (music sung in Spanish), as the guitar’s universal language turns the album into a global mixtape: You never know what you’re going to get, or from where.

Clive Davis Prepares Blockbuster A List Party with JHud, Miley, Lorde, Movie Stars

by Roger Friedman – January 23, 2014

It’s the toughest ticket of the Grammy weekend, Clive Davis‘s pre-Grammy party. For some reason this year is bigger than ever with more bold faced names on the waiting list as the RSVPs come pouring in. Today Jennifer Hudson stopped by to do press with Clive. She’s singing at the show at the Beverly Hilton, sporting a new hot hair cut and her Weight Watchers figure more svelte than ever. I did ask if she’d like to have dessert some time and she told her favorite: cheesecake! Wait til she tries Eileen’s Special Cheesecake in Soho. So much for Weight Watchers!
