In honor of George Harrison’s birthday and the recent premiere and encore presentations of “The Night That Changed America: The Grammys Salute to The Beatles” featured George Harrison’s composition of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.” Carlos Santana covered that same song on his 2010 album “Guitar Heaven” The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time.”

Santana’s sensual version features India.Arie on vocals and Yo-Yo Ma on cello. Harrison’s album track from “The White Album” features Eric Clapton on guitar. Indie and pop music reviewer blogger, Cory Zechmann of ‘Silence No Good,’ had this to say about Santana’s cover version of the 1968 Beatles classic.

“I’ve heard quite a few Beatles cover songs before, but this one really does George Harrison’s original justice. I’ve only listened to a couple tracks off Santana’s album, “Guitar Heaven,” but his rendition of this classic takes it. You can’t beat a Beatle’s song redone by a master guitar player and beautiful vocals by India Arie. Oh, and some damn good cello playing.”
