I know some people also consider Carlos Santana to be a Latin-jazz player to some extents.

Oye Como Va is actually a Tito Puente cover

One of the most famous latin jazz standards is Spain by Chick Corea. On that note, check out his album Touchstone.

Does it matter?

He's done jazz projects, he's done fusion projects, he's even done several Mozart-themed albums...

That's interesting.

Santana, is, in my opinion, one of the most talented guitarists and musicians ever. Even though he's seemed to have "lost it" as of late, his early stuff was awesome, and he'd have some really great albums from time to time.

My jazz band does sambas and bossa novas.

We did a song called Opus de Funk once, it was about three years ago and I don't remember too much of it. I think that the bass was implying the roots a beat before the rest of the band played the chords, or something like that... it took us a little while to get down.
