Europa (Earth's Cry, Heavens Smile)
Track #3 from the album Amigos
Main Author's Notes
This instrumental is one of Santana's best, and most famous compositions. Song credits go to Carlos, and his keyboardist, Tom Coster, who wrote the chord progression, which acts as a lovely counterpoint to the main melody. Or so the story goes. However, a Chilean band, Los Angeles Negroes, released a song six years before Europa, a song that sounds very much like Europa. In my trek through Santana land, I have seen the band take other latin songs and rearrange them. So, who gets the writing credit? I don't know. Love the song, though.
