Decades before their first collaborative album Power of Peace, Carlos Santana heard The Isley Brothers' version of "Twist and Shout" on a San Francisco jukebox and thought, this is music that "brings unity and harmony to the planet".  Carlos, Ron and Ernie Isley talk mutual admiration and memories on the next World Cafe.

The 23rd studio album by Santana and the fourth album by almost the entire Woodstock-era classic lineup. The album reunites the early 1970s classic lineup of Carlos Santana, Gregg Rolie, Neal Schon, Mike Carabello and Michael Shrieve and marks the first time in 45 years – since 1971’s multi-platinum classic Santana III – that the quintet has recorded together. Joining the core Santana IV band in the studio are current Santana members Karl Perazzo (percussion) and Benny Rietveld (bass), with vocalist Ronald Isley guesting on two cuts.
