HEARD IT TODAY … FOR THE FIRST TIME … LOVE IT

The longest-running, most successful partnership in the history of rock takes flight anew as Carlos Santana collaborates with the legendary Clive Davis on the brand new album Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time.

Working from the collective encyclopedic knowledge of rock possessed by the album’s producers, Carlos, Clive Davis, Howard Benson and Matt Serletic, a list of guitar-centric titles was devised and a Who’s Who of guest vocalists were invited to perform on every track alongside Carlos and his full-time band.

Santana covers The Beatles’ ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’

In honor of George Harrison’s birthday, recent premiere and encore presentations of “The Night That Changed America: The Grammy’s Salute to The Beatles” featuring George Harrison’s composition of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps;” Carlos Santana decided to cover that same song on his 2010 album, Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time.

Santana’s sensual version features India Arie on vocals and Yo-Yo Ma on cello. Harrison’s album track from The White Album features Eric Clapton on guitar.

Indie and pop music reviewer blogger, Cory Zechmann of “Silence No Good,” had this to say about Santana’s cover version of the 1968 Beatles classic:

I’ve heard quite a few Beatles cover songs before, but this one really does George Harrison’s original justice. I’ve only listened to a couple tracks off Santana’s album, Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time, but his rendition of this classic takes it.

You can’t beat a Beatle’s song redone by a master guitar player + beautiful vocals by India Arie — oh, and some damn good cello playin’.”
