I have long heard of Ottmar Liebert, but to be honest, have never actually heard his music. Then, by chance, I bought this CD. I'm hooked! It's a wonderful collection of music, blending traditional and modern Spanish guitar with light jazz and sensuous flamenco. The music is sometimes mellow, sometimes lively, but always a pleasure to hear. As an added bonus, Liebert is joined on this album by another great guitarist, Carlos Santana -- Samba Pa Ti was written by Carlos and he plays prominently on that. Together, these two great musicians, along with the band, put out some fantastic music. All but one of the songs are instrumental (except for vocal harmonies on Lilac Sun). The one vocal song (with lyrics) is Deep In Your Heart. I'm afraid to say that this was the only disappointing song on the album. It doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the album, and I don't care for the singing. Otherwise, the album is a gem of great music. I'm planning to buy other Ottmar Liebert albums, now that I know how good he is.

Ottmar Liebert plays a very good guitar and he wants to share his expertise with a global audience. His music is truly beautiful and very relaxing. When listening to this CD you can partake in just about any activity. If you like to read or have creative endevors this is perfect music that stimulates but does not demand your complete attention. The songs for the most part are very mellow. Lush and lyrical the arraignments are a sophisticated blend of pop flamenco that works. There is an intersting version of the "Marvin Gaye's" classic "Mercy, Mercy, Me". The difference here is that it is sung in Spanish in a flamenco style that would make the deceased Motown artist proud. Lots of good tunes here, with a variety of tempos to keep your interest. One of Lieberts better efforts that he has released over the years, this CD has withstood the test of time. Released in 1992, the fine instrumentation keeps it alive. A highlight from this CD is the duet with Carlos Santana which I never get tired of. The song is 'Samba Pa Ti", originally penned and made famous by Santana. The different arraignment makes it hardly recognizeable as Liebert has taken creative freedom to make something new. The music is enchanting and bordering on mystical inspiration. An excellent addition to any complete collection of nuevo flamenco.

I have to agree with all the "real flamenco artists" that critize this guy's stuff. He is not what I would call flamenco at all. He is much more easy to listen to than the pounding, redundant, mashing sound of old world flamenco. I personally get enough of that stuff fast. I like pop music, acoustic stuff, be it folk, traditional or whatever. This guy put a twist on things that kind of brought a new age pop attitude to what some people like to call "spanish flavored" music.

It is unfortunate that Ottmar chose to emphasize his flamenco influences in his album titles and marketing. In so doing he has drawn the ire of all of these expert purist critics of guitar stylings. Some of these critics become so enraged that they sound like the uni-bomber going off on a rant.

Solo Para Ti was the first Ottmar CD I purchased. I love the stuff with Santana on this one. Yes, this music is perfect to listen to softly playing in the background while I read a book or something. I don't listen to this guy to determine how many notes he plays per second. I simply love the tonal quality and the relaxing feeling I derive from it. Later stuff of his like Opium is also great. I own a sailboat and during the summer we listen to Opium every morning as we sip our coffee and watch the the world greet another day. Calm and restful. This guy has a knack for creating mood and peace. I like all that and it would appear that a lot of other listeners feel the same. I give this a five star and I give Opium, and Hours Between fives also. I own some of his other stuff, but sometimes he gets too close to real flamenco for me and so I get up and change artists at that point.

What else can I say about Ottmar Liebert that I've not already said in other reviews of his music. This is another great album by him and I'm so glad I happen to come across it. The sound is relaxing at times, there is some slight upbeat songs at times and there is one vocal on this record which is new to me. I wasn't sure if I would like the vocal song on this album or not after listening to the sample here on Amazon, but I actually like it as well. After having purchased about 1/2 dozen of his CD's albums within the last year or so I figured my collection was 'good enough' but this is a wonderful addition to it.

A very relaxing album in general. Something to put on while entertaining guests. While the general mood of this music is mellow there is some exciting instrumentation, especially with the dueling guitars of Ottmar Liebert and Carlos Santana on track 5.

The perfect CD to start off an evening 'solo' or entertaining guests.

Have given it as a gift to many people who first heard it with me.

A great introduction to Ottmar Liebert's music.
