Funny that miahfost was being the very thing they were pointing out about Carlos & Co.  ("so frickin' boring and repetitive")
simply heard this song too many times.

From the supergroup Ecram (or was it Dyslexia Lures KO? ). Eirc was Dog, I thought...

LOL LOL LOL
That's just brilliant, the segue from Papa Wemba to Santana's Jingo.   I am suddenly filled with expectant delight.  What's next?  Is this a mini set trio?  I can't even begin to posit the next song
Classic. Can never tire of hearing this. Reminds me of so many weddings 
Sometimes I remember that in 1999 the Powers That Be hitched Mr. Santana here to Matchbox 20, produced maybe one of the worst turds ever to be broadcast 1 billion times, and then we were all just cool with it
I had a friend that called him Satana for close to a year after being introduced to his music. We were all gutted when someone corrected him.

One of the best album covers. Paper tickets for some of the shows had the album cover on the stub.

It has that effect, given that, there is a need to accept Santana as an experience.

This continues to age very, very well.  Love the Leslie-powered organ!
The intro totally reminds me of Stevie Wonder's  Another Star  
perfect for getting Dave Mathews out of my head


Oh chalk and cheese! This coming after Ry Cooder? Like bleach after a fine red wine - Santana kills all known germs - Dead! (That's one for the British 40-somethings)
The Lion looks kind of nosey parker.

One of the best versions of Carlos' solo you'll hear.  And yes, I worded that carefully.

Geez, what absolutely fabulous music. Fits into my 'classical music' category. To me, this is timeless and elemental.

What he said!
Like all of the first 3 albums and a large chunk of all subsequent. But nothing in his/their large subsequent catalog beats the initial trilogy.

Sounds like you've just mounted a hobbyhorse. Jingoism, at least in the UK, is used exclusively to refer to nationalist zealots and bellicose patriots. Rabid patriotism is not a characteristic of left-wing movements. It would simply make no sense to refer to, say, Noam Chomsky or Michael Moore (quit hissing at the back there!) as 'jingoists'. You'll have to dig out a more appropriate insult, I'm afraid. 
 

I don't think jingoism as personified by nationalist zealots and bellicose patriots is purely a right wing frame of mind.  It is more a symptom of human nature.   Stalinist Russia and Maoist China come to mind, both of which were far left and quite jingoistic.  North Korea is an extreme case.

Disliking Santana's music does not automatically make someone "closed to alternate cultural values".  It is likely that there are a certain percentage of people who resist music from other cultures, but probably not so much with Carlos' music - at least not here.  I think a lot of folks are just tired of hearing his tunes for all these years.
A piece of me died while watching this year's New Years festivities in Times Square (on TV).... Carlos onstage with Justin Bieber was more than I could process. o_O

One of my all-time fave guitarists and an incredible live performer.

Perhaps. Although I can't claim any of the ancestry you mention and I like most of what Santana has performed. {#Dance}

Hey, I used "jingo" in a Scrabble game.  I don't know what it means
Repetitive and dull.

Jingoism is like hyped-up activism, like the Tea Party on steroids, vigilantes on the Mexican border, that type of thing.  A common word in the '60's but dont know that jingo itself is a 'real' word.  I think it sums up the frenetic quality of the music pretty good tho.

 
Your definition is not quite accurate: the Oxford English Dictionary defines "jingoism" as "extreme patriotism in the form of aggressive foreign policy".  The English phrase "by jingo" goes back to the 17th Century as a polite form of "by Jesus".

"Art Is Resistance"

Is there better Rock!.... the Roll is good as well....
Eargasm everytime I hear this.
God it is tough to sit still during this song. And the last one, and the one before that, and the one before that. And my headphone cable is way too short. What a way to get up and going on a Tuesday Morning. Bill this is an awesome set!

Santana - Jingo
Lemon Jelly - Homage To Patagonia
Dick Dale - Miserlou
Stone Temple Pilots - Big Empty
The Derek Trucks Band - Down on the Flood

Can't wait to hear what's next. {#Music}


HAH, just what I needed to get going in the morning, a double shot of expresso Santana...

Bring back gooood memories of 1976-78 timeframe when riding and sweating hard with the most beloved one in a dark room full of Santana music and the delightful fragrance of homegrown weeds was the utmost funny occupation during hot summer afternoons.

I'm with you. First heard this song sitting in a hotel bar in Cochabama Bolivia. It was an OMG moment - rock and roll with Latin sounds!
