SAN FRANCISCO -- Salvador Santana's fresh spin on the classic Santana hit "Evil Ways" is the album-opening track on the disc “A Song For My Father,” a compilation of young music artists recreating tunes originally made famous by their musical fathers.

As recorded by Carlos Santana and the Santana Band, "Evil Ways" was a Top 10 single in 1969, a highlight of their self-titled debut LP that year. When Salvador Santana was asked to contribute to “A Song For My Father,” it was one of several choices suggested for the project. "It jumped out at me right away," says Salvador, "it hadn't been used as much as the others being considered. It seemed like a perfect opportunity to flip the script on everybody."

Others paying musical tribute on “A Song For My Father” include Devon Allman, Louise Goffin, Sarah Lee Guthrie, Ky-Mani Marley, Ivan Neville, Ben Taylor and Wendy & Carnie Wilson, among others.
