Supernova features John McLaughlin, Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter, with album due next year

Carlos Santana has formed a fusion supergroup with John McLaughlin, Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter, he's revealed.

Supernova are planning to record an album early next year then tour Europe over the summer.

Guitarist Santana tells Billboard: “It’s kind of like sharing music with Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking – Wayne and Herbie are at that level of genius. I’m grateful they accept it and want to do it.”

Alongside guitarist McLaughlin, saxophonist Shorter and keyboardist Hancock, the band will also feature Santana’s wife Cindy on drums.

“Every time I play with Cindy it goes viral,” he says. "The energy between Cindy and I is very Supernova.”

Yea, I had to look 'em up too.  Razz  You might recognize Cindy Blackman-Santana as the big haired drummer from old Lenny Kravitz videos...



I had no idea she was married to Carlos.

People really didn't know who John McLaughlin is? I can sort of understand not knowing Wayne Shorter if you've never listened to jazz but...

Anyway, all of these musicians are still alive, healthy and still have impressive chops so of course I'm definitely interested in hearing what they come up with.

For the record, John McLaughlin and Carlos Santana already recorded together years ago on the album Love Devotion Surrender.



The name of the band is inspired by the Wayne Shorter album Supernova.

(cough) Ummmm... I was kidding. Of COURSE I know who, whatzisname, Josiah McLaughter is. I just wanted to see if YOU knew. (cough cough) Very Happy

Obviously I have no f*cking idea who he is. I'm just a dumb metal head, remember? Laughing very hard

I sorta recognized the name, but still had to look him up. "Oh that John McLaughlin. Of course."

My Mother took me to a McLaughlin concert when I was about 7 years old so I had seen him years before I ever started listening to fusion.

Here's a video of Mahavishnu Orchestra from 1972. Start around the 2 minute mark. Beware: crazy avant garde jazz-rock ahead...

They might wanna re-think that band name "Supernova," cuz it didn't work out to well for the band by the same name that was created on the TV show "Rock Star" a few years back Very Happy

I was thinking the same thing when I read the title of the thread.  Did that Supernova ever even release anything?

I imagine that there must have been a token album release after the show crowned a winner (whoever it was), which was then utterly ignored. Very Happy

EDIT: Yup, there was... and it was. Very Happy

Wasn't the show created as a vehicle to find some mew lead singer? I think it was for INXS?

That was it's own reality show, 'Rock Star: INXS'. Supernova was supposed to be more like a "hard rock" version of 'American Idol'. A backing "super group" with a winning contestant lead singer.
