Illuminations is a 1974 collaboration between Carlos Santana and Alice Coltrane. Jazz musicians Jules Broussard, Jack DeJohnette and Dave Holland can also be heard, on saxo, flute, drums and bass. Alice Coltrane, as often, delivers some nice harp glissando, while the string orchestra adds a tense, dramatic or serene mood to the music. Carlos Santana ( whose indian name "Devadip" appears on the sleeve )plays electric guitar in his own fashion, utilizing feedback, long notes and simple melodies, letting much space to the other instruments. The album is conceived as an instrumental jazz album, with lenghty solos on guitar, saxophone and keyboards. The introduction to "Angel of Air", with its magnificent violins, has been sampled by the Cinematic Orchestra.
