    R.I.P. Jorge Santana.

    Carlos Santana's youngest brother, Jorge died of natural causes at 68 years old this Friday.
    He was founder and leader of Malo: an american musical group known for its blend of latino, rock, jazz, and blues as some of you may know.
    Also, his years spent in the Fania All-Stars were decisive and important for its sound IMO!.

    Rest in Peace Maestro!.

    RIP



    I am ansolutely flabbergasted that none of their first three albums were never reissued in CD (except for Japan-only releases)

    I bought the Malo self titled LP a few years back due to my extreme admiration for "Suavecito". The remainder of the album is decent, but not anything close to the aforementioned track. That experience reminded me of why I quit buying albums based on one track, once I got into prog rock in my early twenties. That "Suavecito" cut is a real gem, for certain.

    I also have an album with the three Santana brothers on it which is a very cool, jazzy guitar fest.

    Sorry to hear of Jorge's passing.

    I always liked the mid-90s "Santana Brothers" album, which was Carlos, Jorge and Carlos' nephew. This was right after Jorge and Carlos had toured together and released the excellent Sacred Fire live album.

    never heard his music, but I can remember seeing this cover in my local library.



    Never borrowed it, because I wasn't really in the music his brother made.

    That panty-cover Jorge Santana album was pure disco, I think

    actually Suavecito is my least prefered track on that album.

    Japanese reissues of 70s albums are usually in the mini-LP format.

    That's cool! Jorge was in Carlos' band on the Santana-Dylan twofer tour. That's the only time I saw him live.

    RIP Jorge.

    I saw him perform with the Fania All Stars in late 70s. But I met him at a social gathering once.

    Agreed. "Suavecito" is a lovely track.

    So sad he is gone.

    The first one was. I have it.Some of the others were Japanese only CD's and in 2001 there was even a 4-CD box on CD.
