THE UNIVERSAL TONE*   Pub Date: November 4

By Carlos Santana, with Ashley Kahn Read by Carlos Santana

In the realm of guitar gods, Santana stands alone for what’s come to be called his “universal tone”– both the fact that you can recognize a Santana song from just one note and the fact that Santana is well known to believe music and soul are interconnected. From growing up dirt poor in Mexico and suffering abuse, to a person whom you might almost think is perpetually in a state of nirvana or at least bliss, this is the story of a fascinating man who brings the ideal combination of storytelling gold and a major marketing machine.
