''Borboletta'' is the sixth studio album by Santana. It is one of his jazz-funk-oriented albums, along with "Caravanserai", "Welcome", "Love, Devotion and Surrender" with John McLaughlin, "Illuminations" with Alice Coltrane, Jack DeJohnette and Jules Broussard. The guitarist leaves a lot of room to percussion, saxophone and keyboards to set moods ("Spring manifestations"), as well as lengthy solos by himself ("Promise of a fisherman") and vocals ("Give and take", a funky guitar-led song). The record was released in a shiny blue sleeve displaying a butterfly, an allusion to the album Butterfly Dreams by Brazilian musician Flora Purim and her husband Airto Moreira, whose contributions deeply influenced the sound of "Borboletta".
