Ottmar Liebert Releases His First Solo Recording Santa Fe, New Mexico - After 22 releases and a stellar career enjoyed by few guitarists of our time, award winning guitarist Ottmar Liebert has released his most daring and unadorned recording yet.

Recorded solo with no overdubs, Ottmar delivers his amazing guitar prowess with a 2002 Flamenco Negra by Lester DeVoe of Nipomo, California. This 13 song release was “70% improvised” says Liebert, which contributes to the more personal nature and intimate environment that takes the listener to a different place.
This thoughtfully present artist stretches his musicality with each release - exploring new themes, investigating perspectives and performing with dazzling tone, space and time of his instrument. The music business is a vastly changing industry and Ottmar has been an artistic leader in taking control of all aspects of his art and career.
