Carlos Santana is an artist in need of no introduction... throughout the sixties he established himself as one of the leading guitar virtuosos with his recognisable latin-influenced guitar playing. What truly makes Carlos Santana an exceptional musician is the fact he's constantly evolving. On his recent records many of today's pop artists have been featured.

As well it might, "All That I Am" contains Latin-infused rock blended with today's popular genres. Featured guest artists include Steven Tyler, Mary J. Blige, Michelle Branch, Sean Paul, Big Boi, Bo Bice among others. Time certainly passes quickly while listening to this album, as the material is nicely varying throughout the whole record.

All That I Am was produced by Clive Davis and Carlos Santana himself. The sounds are both warm and transparent, and there isn't much to complain about. On the whole, Santana has once again come up with a good record that will definitely find its way to people's record collections.
