Description

Ottmar Liebert harnesses the emotional fire and mournful tonalities of traditional Flamenco music, updates it with the subtle rhythms of jazz and makes it widely accessible with the melodic song structures of pop. The acoustic guitarist summed it up with the apt comment that Nouveau Flamenco is to the traditional variety what bossa nova is to samba. But even the cleverest formulas are worthless without the animating spark of genius, a quality for which there is no formula, only serendipity.
