Santana recycles his Billboard-all-stars formula yet again on All That I Am, this time rounding up everyone from Big Boi to Los Lonely Boys to (yikes!) Bo Bice. And again, he saddles his guests with stupendously pedestrian material: perfunctory forays into rock-radio balladry (”Just Feel Better” with Steven Tyler), R&B soul (”My Man” with an unconvincingly upbeat Mary J.
