Abraxas is Black Magic Woman second studio album by Latin rock band Santana. It was released on September 23, by Columbia Records. The title of the album originates from a line in Hermann Hesse 's book Demianquoted on the album's back cover: "We stood before it and began to freeze inside from the exertion. We questioned the painting, berated it, made love to it, prayed to it: We called it mother, called it whore and slut, called it our beloved, called it Abraxas Both were influenced as guitarists by B.
The band added a cover of Gabor Szabo's instrumental "Gypsy Queen" to the end. The group's Gregg Rolie played the other keyboards, contrasting with Gianquinto's jazz-influenced style. It ran through various time and key signatures. The instrumental, " Samba Pa Ti " "Samba for You"was written by Santana after he saw a jazz saxophonist performing in the Love Is The Answer (Zapata Demo) - Harry Nilsson - Zapata/Harry Does Yoko outside his apartment.
