Show Info

There is a change in the weather and sound for Ottmar Liebert’s release entitled ‘Dune.’ Magic men are said to be drawn to the desert sands. Sometimes they come as sculptors like Christo that put up strange and beautiful environments that inspire. Sometimes they come as Native American medicine men or old Japanese Kyoto masters to meditate and postulate. And sometimes, just plain and simple great artists disguised as guitar players. Liebert’s new release “Dune” sits firmly in the crosshairs of it all. Random beauty – airy, rhythmic and sometimes funky; sounds to put you inside of full and empty spaces, at the same time. Ottmar is always exceptionally brilliant and mysterious, but.... Ottmar has been nominated for 5 Grammy’s and has multiple Gold and Platinum records (www.ottmarliebert.com/biography/awards.php). He has sold millions of records across the globe. This skilled practitioner of contemporary flamenco guitar is always a surprise. He plays with lots of textures in this set – contrasting traditional and electric instruments and adding accordion, Memphis bass lines, trumpets and a drum machine – in addition to lots of percussion. This release features Ottmar on acoustic and electric guitars; Jon Gagan on acoustic upright bass, electric bass guitars, and keyboards, including clavinet; Char Rothschild on accordion; Robby Rothschild on percussion (Chris Steele on Track 14). Ottmar adds “I’m following the idea of contrasting traditional and electric instruments like we did on the ‘Opium’ release. "
