By J. Lovins HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on November 2, 2001
Format: Audio CD
Our young composer/musician from Higher Octave, shares the peace of the "Holiday Season", with counterpoint flair...can only be described through his God-given-talent of music...fifteen selections that will open you heart, capturing the moment from surroundings that remind you of "peace on earth, good will toward men"...if it doesn't, you missed the Christmas message!
As usual there are stand outs ~ "DECK THE HALLS", puts you immediately in a festive mood..."ANGELS WE HAVE HEARD ON HIGH/HIGH ON HOPE", sends a message from within..."LITTLE DRUMMER BOY/LUNA NEGRA BEAT", Latin guitar blends of percussion, speaks to us on a Flamenco plain, simply breath-taking...but the highlight is "1ST NOWELL", always one of my favorites, Ottmar gives this traditional carol another whole meaning, Liebert's arrangement takes you back to another time, where it all took place, in a small stable and a star shining brightly.
Total Time: 53:39 on 15 Tracks ~ Higher Octave HOMCD-77605 ~ (1990)

Ottmar Liebert does a great job of playing classic Christmas melodies with his own New Mexican style. His renditions are cheery and original. This is a great addition to any world music Christmas collection.

Out of my wife's and my 20 or so Christmas CD's this one gets the most play--from the tree going up to taking the last garland off the walls and the wreath off the door. I've been an Ottmar Liebert fan since I saw him open for Basia in 1989 at C.W. Post on Long Island and his signature flamenco sound is miraculous. He brought such a wonderful style of music to the mainstream and goes even further with this collection of Christmas classics as well as some originals that blend right in. A perfect CD...

If you are as much of a fan of Ottmar's playing and music, as I am, you will love this! It's great how he plays the familiar Christmas tunes, then adds his own
additional tunes with each one. Keeps the mood going, and you can still sing along with the part you know, yet it doesn't bore those who are already tired of the seasonal music. This is beautiful.

Great album. A new way to hear old Christmas standby's done in a lively, and sensitive way. Ottmar Liebert is very good at what he does, and one never tires of listening to his version of the pieces he plays.

20 years ago I bought this in cassette from an airport store. I lost it along the way and often tried to find it. THEN I thought of Amazon and low & behold, I could still get it in CD form. This is one of my favorite CD's ever (my new favorite is "Forte" also from Amazon).

I remembered hearing his music on the radio here in Trinidad, West Indies for the Christmas season, so I just had to get his Christmas CD. I just enjoy the music it is very beautiful. I am so happy to have this CD. Thanks again Ottmar for sharing your unique talent with the world. Keep up the good work man !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have owned this CD from the first time it was released - probably 25 years ago. I still have the original Higher Octave CD with all the inserts. This CD has been played a lot over the years and I usually bring it out and play it this time every year. It's a timeless collection of standby Christmas tunes, with a couple of new ones, Poets and Angels and Festival (of 7 lights). Ottmar Liebert has changed his style with Luna Negra over the years and although I have most of his music CD's, his early works are impressive after all these years.

I will never tire of listening to this CD because one, I've grown old with it and two, it brings me back to the first time I listened to it and the rapture I felt listening to1st Nowell just captivated me and compelled me to keep listening to it through the years. I have a confession to make - sometimes, I break it out around September and sneak a listen to a couple of favorite songs. It's like getting an extra serving of your favorite dessert! What a treat!
