Carlos Santana will have to wait another 44 days to see if his career renaissance with the album "Supernatural" is capped with a Grammy night victory--but he'll find out this week that just being nominated makes him a big winner at the nation's cash registers.

The "Supernatural" career revival of Carlos Santana cast a spell over the 42nd annual Grammy nominations on Tuesday with the guitar rock hero and the band that shares his name combining for 10 nominations, including best album and record. Santana and his group had previously combined for only five Grammy nominations in their storied 30-year career, but the 10 nominations Tuesday trail only Michael Jackson and Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds for most nods in a single year.

First-round ballots for this year's Grammy Awards will be mailed to more than 10,000 voters Friday, but the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences could save on postage if it skipped the formalities and announced the big winner: Santana. The veteran group's "Supernatural," which is the nation's current No. 1 album, is the front-runner to win the best album award in the 42nd annual Grammy ceremony, which will be held Feb. 23 at Staples Center.

When Carlos Santana and his Blues Band formed in 1966, the '60s had unfolded into a heavy rock era that saw Santana, who is from Tijuana, climb from gigs at the Fillmore to his star-making performance at Woodstock. But that was then. Several generations of rock bands have evolved in those 30 years, including Mana, a Latin soft-rock pop band, and Ozomatli, which blends salsa, hip-hop and funk. Both represent the new rock en espanol genre.

After a three-decade career packed with critical acclaim and commercial landmarks, Carlos Santana might not have anything to prove. But you wouldn't know it from his first studio album in almost a decade. Santana's guitar soars throughout the vigorous "Supernatural" (due in stores Tuesday), stimulated by a host of young guest artists, from Wyclef Jean and Matchbox 20's Rob Thomas to Dave Matthews and producer K.C. Porter. All of them enhance the album in multiple and unexpected ways.

It's a gorgeous summer morning in this sleepy town across the bay from San Francisco--just the kind of day, no doubt, that inspired Carlos Santana a decade ago to think about making this area his home base. Not only does he live here, but he also has an office complex downtown, where he rehearses and deals with business matters. But the area's calm is broken by the clatter from a plethora of car repair shops.
