Synopsis

Product Description
Petals On The Path delivers Ottmar Liebert's signature Flamenco style with a refreshing new approach. After touring Japan last fall with the new Luna Negra trio, everyone realized this was a special group of musicians. ''Instead of crafting the songs in the studio, one track at time, we decided to record the group playing together as we would on stage, says Liebert.'' With Jon Gagan on bass and Michael Chavez on drums, the trio set out to record the album in four sessions with very few overdubs. ''I wanted to capture an old-fashioned organic drum sound and to keep a well-defined space by mixing the bass to one side, the drums to the other, and the guitar up the middle... a production nod to the 60's that created a big canvas with an intimate feel to it.'' Superb musicianship abounds throughout this collection of eleven intriguing and sensual melodies. The seemingly simple, yet well thought out, arrangements weave and intertwine like the grace and complex simplicity of haiku poetry. Petals On The Path is a tantalizing journey that is Ottmar Liebert at his best.
 

CD Reviews

Another Gem from Ottmar
Suntot | AZ, US | 06/25/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Once in a blue moon do you discover such great talent. You could say that Ottmar Liebert's work is under appreciated. You might go as far to say that it's overlooked. Yet, as a young kid I discovered his work. Picked up Nouveau Flamenco back in '99 and the rest is history. I have bought every single CD since then, and I have attended several of his concerts. Just when you can't imagine that his music could get better, he astonishes you again. Petals on the Path is another Gem in a world full of musical garbage. Such titles as "Blue by Blue", "Dancing Alone" "Future Green", "Cedar Smoke" and the edgy "Backwards Butterfly" stand out. Ottmar keeps reinventing himself. You might remember such masterpieces as "Barcelona Nights", Snake Charmer", "Surrender 2 Love", "Ocean Blvd./ Miami", "Up Close: Beginning", among many others. Yet this album is unique in it's own terms. At times it's very mellow and relaxing, ("Blue by Blue") other times it cranks it up a few notches, ("Dancing Alone", "Backwards Firefly") and other times it simply takes you on a journey ("Cedar Smoke"). If you appreciate quality music, pick this album up. You definitively will have a new appreciation for Ottmar's incredible work."
