5 stars Absolute milestone in latino flavoured jazz-rock. The opener ' Singing Winds,Crying Beasts ' is a nice, with a lot of percussion permeated instrumental which main I would say historic role was to lead us to the famous organ intro of Peter Green's immortal blues evergreen which moderate tempo unexpectedly turns into furious latin jazz-rock finale. ' Oye Como Va ' is full of latin pulse, while ' Incident At Neshabur ' jazziest track on the album intrigues wit plenty of tempo changes. From side two I'd highlight anthological ' Samba Pa Ti ' instrumental and a follower ' Hope You're Feeling Better ' with its strong, almost hard rocking structure. Although subsequent two albums were of a similar quality, personally I look on Abraxas as Santana's creative peak.
