Pablo Tellez

Pablo Tellez was at the forefront of the Latin jazz rock movement by way his tenure in two watershed ensembles: Malo, led by Jorge Santana and Arecelio Garcia; and as a member of Carlos' extraordinary 1976-77 Santana line-up. 

With a deep, round Fender P tone, Tellez percolated in-the-pocket, plying harmonic extensions aplenty amid the poly-rhythmic percussion and extended improvisations which defined the genre.  Pablo, who is still on the bandstand, also plied his craft with Labelle, Pete Escovedo, and The Latin Spice Band, among others.
