What to Expect
Savor captures Santana's music so closely you'd think you were listening to the album. But that's just the beginning. With their colorful Afro-Cuban / '60s clothing, and a dynamic stage presence, they engage the audience from beginning to end.
Savor was formed to honor the 40-year career of latin-rock legend Carlos Santana — from the raw power of the self-titled album issued in 1969 to the recent spate of hits with current (link hidden)at makes Santana’s music so well-loved.
The diverse background of Savor’s rhythm section meshes perfectly when they play as a unit, which is why the complex interweaving of classic latin rhythms are so adroitly handled by this trio. Drummer Rob Canny’s solid-as-a-rock groove meshes perfectly with the percussion team of Lorenzo Martinez (Congas, Bongos) and Chico Hernandez (Congas, Timbales).
Complementing the rhythm section is bassist Rick Thibodeau, whose soulful flavor rounds out the famous Santana groove, while vocalist Steven Elowe’s impressive range and power add fuel to the fire. Keyboardist David Jefferson captures the sound of each of the decades, from the bluesy organ style of Gregg Rolie to the later, jazzier flavor of Tom Coster and Chester Thompson.
Guitarist Michael Caroff delivers every trademark Santana lick, as well as the gritty tone and singing sustain that make the songs so memorable.
Together, Savor pays fitting tribute to the popular, timeless sound that makes Santana’s music so well-loved.
