Synopsis

Amazon.com
It's been more than a decade since Ottmar Liebert came on the national music scene with his debut album, Nouveau Flamenco. The German-born guitarist brought a hybrid approach to this passionate Spanish guitar style that made it more atmospheric and brought him one of the largest audiences for an instrumentalist. Each succeeding album has been a deeper exploration of this approach, expanding it into orchestral and ambient terrain. You can hear the guitarist stretching beyond convention on tracks like "Waiting 4 Stars 2 Fall," creating a more cinematic expanse with synthesizer pads and conga drums or doubling up guitars on "Shepherd's Nite Watch." Surrender 2 Love is yet another culling of music from his early years with the Higher Octave label, and like most second "Best of" collections, it is, indeed, second-best. After all, he only recorded three albums for the label in the first place. But Surrender 2 Love is far from being Liebert's dregs, and even on a second pass, he stands six strings above most nouveau flamenco pretenders. --John Diliberto

CD Reviews

"a man, guitarist & a love of music"
J. Lovins | Missouri-USA | 10/24/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When you think of all the guitarist...past & present...this name should be in the top five ~ Ottmar Liebert...think six strings, tender touch and a style that has captured the world. Liebert takes the moment, time seems to stand still with each track on this album...it's difficult to select one over the other, because they are not the same in substance, counter-balance or texture...his ability to take a melody, weave a fine tapestry...is what sets him above the rest.Total Time: 52:11 on 14 tracks ~ Higher Octave Music HOMCD-10939 ~ (2001)"
Another great album by the jazz guitar man
Antonio Daniel | Miami, FL USA | 08/24/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ottmar leibert has a gift with those hands and the guitar he plays. This is album 2 and it has the same majic as his volume 1.
Get it and enjoy the great music he created."
Guitar - an extention of his form
Angela N. Grainger | Portland, Oregon USA | 10/21/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What a wonderful and diverse CD. Sit in front of a fire on a rainy day with a nice glass of Oregon Pinot Noir in your hand. Close your eyes relax and let the sounds of Liebert surround you. His talent is evident in the expressions as he's playing. The guitar seems an extension of his own form, not a separate instrument."
