Diggin' the *OTHER* Santana brother

I'm listening to the *other* SANTANA brother on my day off today -- JORGE SANTANA.
Specifically, I am enjoying the 1972 self-titled debut by Jorge Santana's band MALO.
It is a fantastic album, buoyed by the single "SUAVECITO," which climbed to No. 18 in the American pop charts.
There are some fantastic musicians on here, including Coke Escovedo (percussion, Sheila E.'s uncle), Abel Zarate (guitar) and Pablo Tellez (bass).
This album is a true BAY AREA classic, recorded in San Mateo, Calif.
You should definitely check it out.
