Ottmar Liebert

German guitarist, composer, and producer Ottmar Liebert rose to success in the 1990s with his Spanish-influenced, easy listening instrumental music that he initially described as "Nouveau Flamenco." Born in Cologne, West Germany, Liebert spent much of his youth traveling around Europe and Asia with his parents. After picking up the guitar at age 11, he developed an early interest in flamenco music, although it was a career in rock that would initially bring him to the United States. After plying his trade for a few years in Boston's early-'80s rock scene, he eventually settled in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where began to develop the instrumental guitar sound that would soon vault him to the top of the new age charts. A self-released album called Marita: Shadows and Storms, under the name Luna Negra, was released in 1989 and sold at a local Native American art gallery in Santa Fe. The album found favor on local radio and soon drew the interest of Higher Octave Music, which re-released it the following year under the title Nouveau Flamenco and bearing Liebert's own name. It was an immediate success, eventually going double-platinum in the U.S. and propelling Liebert into the spotlight as a new age star. Over the coming decade, he would sell millions of albums and earn Grammy nominations for releases like 1991's Borrasca, 1993's The Hours Between Night & Day, and 1996's Opium.

Over the years, Liebert's style would continue to develop, fusing jazz, classical, pop, and Latin into his own distinctive mix. After many years with Epic Records, Liebert returned to the Higher Octave label, releasing 2002's In the Arms of Love: Lullabies 4 Children & Adults. 2005 saw the release of Winter Rose, his second holiday-themed release, which was followed a year later by the solo guitar album One Guitar, earning him yet another Grammy nomination. For 2008's Up Close, Liebert recorded the album in binaural surround sound. That same year, The Scent of Light earned him yet another Grammy nod. He continued recording prolifically into the next decade, issued albums like 2011's Santa Fe, 2012's Dune, and 2014's three-oh-five. A new anthology released that same year called Bare Wood collected many of his best recordings from 2002-2012. 2015's Waiting N Swan continued his evolution mixing tango and flamenco styles with reggae beats. ~ Timothy Monger

You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of you love. Now that you started reading this don't stop. This is so freaky but if you ignore it you'll have bad luck. Post this in 10 songs in the next 143 minutes when your done press the space bar and your crushes name will appear on the screen, this is freaky. It actually works.

I recently saw him and his group live in Phoenix... a longtime dream for me. He absolutely blew me away in person, so subtle and sensual, he mostly played with his eyes closed, and I listened the same way. His new disc, Waiting n Swan with the Bob Marley covers is delightful.

Saw him live in Phoenix several years ago.. He came out barefoot, jeans and tee shirt. I was very intrigued and could have listened to him all night. His music stirs my soul and just make you sway and feel good. Talked to him after the concert and bought his latest disk. I've played it over and over. It even calms my dog down as soon as I put it on he lays down on front of recliner and just relaxes. Keep doing what you do. Love it.

I lived in Ashland , Or. I owned Pole Dance Experience. I would have climbed mountains to meet him. He so stirs my heart and soul. l had routine's that I taught to my students to Ottar's music. I so want to dance flamingo. My biggest wish is to meet him in person. I have been listening since KKSF IN SAN FRANCISCO IN THE 80's. I won a trip to Paris from KKSF. SWEETNESS:)

A beautiful day in Taos. Remembering summer of 2014 when Ottmar was scheduled for a free concert in Medford OR. It rained and the show was cancelled. It rained very briefly and many waited, wishing he'd change his mind. He appeared, spoke with each of us giving us each a CD. People started leaving but i stayed, longingly looking at the big black bus still in the road. He reappeared, guitar in hand. We surrounded him onstage and he played for about 30 minutes just to our small group. The best.

I dont remember how I was introduced to his style but I was hooked and that was as far back as the 80s. You know i think i first heard him in a small new age shop I use to go to in Carmel, Ca.

I saw him at Tupelo Music Hall in Derry, NH on June 4, 2015. That was the 5th year I have attended his show. I can't get enough of his music. I am definitely addicted to the sensuality and happy place his music takes me. Love it!

There is nothing romantic that leaves out the possibilitie s of the entire spectrum of emotion. The romantic poets certainly knew that.
