Track by Track: Do You Remember Me

Don’t miss Carlos taking you Behind the Song with “Do You Remember Me”

“Do You Remember Me” begins with a striking guitar figure, an invitation to dance. Once the band kicks in with a graceful Afro-Cuban groove (courtesy of Cindy on drums, with Karl Perazzo on congas, timbales and percussion), Santana opens up on a full five minutes of some of his most gorgeous soloing yet – his lead lines are stinging, teasing, crying and sensuous – before singers Andy Vargas and Ray Greene take over.

Remarkably, the song was captured in a single take in which Santana and his band recorded with Rick Rubin at the renowned producer’s Shangri-la Studio in Malibu. “Miles Davis and Bob Dylan always said that the first take is the best, and I have to agree,” Santana says. “You can hear the innocence in the music. That’s a nutrient that’s missing on this planet right now.”

Track by Track: In Search of Mona Lisa

The EP’s title track, “In Search of Mona Lisa” sets a different mood. Produced by Narada Michael Walden, the song features a hypnotic Bo Diddley-esque rhythm. Carlos lets loose with biting, wah-drenched call-and-response phrases with singer Cornell “CC” Carter before he takes flight on an impassioned extended guitar solo.
