Carlos Santana has a lot on his plate these days: He's launching a chain of Mexican restaurants, appearing in Macy's commercials to hype the line of women's shoes he's designed, and advocating a national holiday to honor labor leader César Chávez. But he still finds time now and then to play a bit of guitar. Santana's records over the last decade have focused on his collaborations with various pop, rock, and hip-hop musicians, but his live show still includes many of the fiery, percussion-heavy jams like "Jingo" and "Incident at Neshabur" that helped burn his signature sound into the public consciousness back in the day, abetted by a superlative band featuring jazz/funk giant Dennis Chambers on drums and longtime keyboardist Chester Thompson.
