AllMusic Review by

This two-disc set captures the pairing of Latin rock figurehead Carlos Santana with post bop legend Wayne Shorter at the 1988 Montreux Jazz Festival. As one might expect, the concert covers a lot of stylistic ground, including jazz, Latin, blues, rock, and elements of African and Indian music. With the help of a top-drawer backing band, Santana and Shorter stretch out liberally, indulging their mutual penchant for exploratory soloing driven by an almost spiritual searching. The set is a must for fans of either artist, but is pleasurable listening for almost anyone interested in post-1960s rock and jazz.
