This concert was fabulous as only Ottmar Liebert and his group can be. The size of the space was perfect and the acoustics were the best. I did not appreciate the very close quarters of the B.B King venue for eating dinner and the service was sloppy. We got food but no silverware or dinner napkins. It was also very expensive with only 4 shrimp on the $14.00 appetizer. But we ordered oysters also and they were $16.00 for 6 and were excellent. I would have to think twice about going there again though as the overall experience at the venue was not great.
Quotes & Highlights
- Hear Ottmar Leibert's music at his website.
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.
