Carlos Santana
Blues For Salvador
CBS Records
Freedom, the last release by the
Santana Band, was held up for
months before its release last sum-
mer while Carlos Santana and CBS
Records locked horns over the
record's content. It seems Santana's
initial submission to the label for.
which he has recorded for 18 years
wasn't pop enough. Too ethnic. Too
Latin. Not enough singing. So the
battle raged. In the end Freedom, a
tribute to mediocrity, was issued
with much backing.
Now, Carlos Santana gets his
wish. Blues For Salvador is released
and proves what the optimists
thought all along; Santana hasn't
lost a step. This album is oozing
with sincerity that.hasn't been seen
since the days of Abraxas. It' s
mainly instrumental, more so than
anything since his collaboration al-
bum with John McGlaughlin It
does feature Buddy Miles, former
Jimi Hendrix drummer and new lead
singer on Freedom, belting out some
soulful sounds on "Balando/Aquatic
Park," the opening track. Legendary
jazz drummer Tony Williams juices

up the high flying "Traine," ar-
guably the best song on the album.
"Hannibal," a remake of the song
from Santana's 1981 Zebop, moves
and grooves and closes with a tasty
jazz serenade.
The title track rounds out the disc
with a 5 1/2 minute romp of Latin;
blues in which Carlos wails, flails
and jives all over his guitar just like
the Carlos Santana we used to know.
This album outshines anything
since 1978's Inner Secrets by a long
shot and is perhaps the' best record
since the band's 1973 third album.
After 18 years the man can still kick
into high gear. The record reassures
what all of us had hoped for: Carlos
Santana has not mellowed out to the'
.point of being some pop-rotten-
wimp-shit, but rather he perseveres
as the man. who's survived more
band changes, more religions (well,
maybe not more than Dylan), and
more money-hungry record executive
weasels than anyone this side of Ti-
juana, and still stands tall as gui-
tarist extraordinaire and king of Latin
rock. Blues- For Salvador is phe-

Obraztsova brings Russian song


Barbara Streisand


By David Hoegberg
The University Musical Society's
Choral Union Series continues
tonight with the Ann Arbor debut of
the outstanding Russian mezzo-so-
prano Elena Obraztsova in Hill Au-
ditorium. Partnered by pianist John
Wustman, a Michigan School of,
Music graduate, Obraztsova will de-
vote her recital to songs by two of
her compatriots - Tchaikovsky and
Russia has long been known for
its cultivation of great basses and
mezzo-sopranos, the lower male and
female voice types. Names like
Obukhova, Borisenko, Doluk-
hanova, and Arkhipova may mean
little to Western audiences, but they
constitute a century-long tradition of
superb Russian mezzos characterized
by rich and powerful voices.
Obraztsova is by no means dwarfed
by such historical comparisons.

Obraztsova is one of the finest
singers of the line to which she is
heir, and one of the first to have a
major career outside Russia. She has
appeared with all the important con-
ductors of our time and in every ma-
jor opera house. Her Metropolitan
Opera debut in 1976 was followed
by a portrayal of Dalila in Saint-
Saens' Samson et Dalila that was
dubbed "a thrilling piece of singing
in every aspect" by the New York
Times. Her voice, absolutely even
from top to bottom, has a mysteri-
ous darkness as well as a keen cut-
ting edge, making her ideally suited
to such difficult roles as Amneris,
Azucena, Ulrica, Dalila, and Char-
lotte, all of which she has recorded.
Russian composers, of course,
shaped and were shaped by the great
voices available to them. That is
why Obraztsova's program promises
to be so special. The Russian song
literature is as varied, incisive, and

delightful as its European counter-
parts and deserves to be better known
in the West. It comes into its own
when sung by a native who under-
stands every nuance of the words she
sings, who was raised on the same
musical idioms, and whose vocal
training corresponds exactly to the
composer's expectations. What bet-
ter way to discover or rediscover the
world of Russian song than to be

guided by one of the great Russian
singers of her day? As an added treat,
you'll probably hear some more fa-
miliar operatic favorites as encores.
