Although it seems a little soon after the Barcelona Nights: The Best of Ottmar Liebert compilation the year before, 2002's The Best of Ottmar Liebert is a more rounded collection from the flamenco master. His mixture of new age keyboards and traditional Latin ballads makes for quite the pleasing mix, and the track sequence reflects his songwriting and arranging growth through the years. Starting with his lighter early material, moving on through the brooding-yet-up-tempo feel of his mid-'90s albums, and finishing off with the energetic flow of his work around the turn of the century, The Best of Ottmar Liebert does a good job of summing up his output. Because of the nature of greatest-hits albums, some fans may find problems with the tracks chosen. But overall this collection has a nice flow and showcases the talents of Liebert in an even and interesting way. ~ Bradley Torreano

Ottmar Liebert's music bridges the gaps between flamenco, jazz, and world music. On this effort, he takes on classical forms as well, merging his styles with a symphony orchestra. The music includes pieces by Ravel, Satie, Puccini, and Villa-Lobos, even if the recording may not be wholly classical in nature -- for example, he does not play classical guitar. Liebert is an emotional player, but for most of this recording, he tones down his fiery flamenco style for more restrained yet enticingly emotive playing. The resulting synthesis may not be exactly classical, but it's engaging and engrossing. ~ Ross Boissoneau

Almost overnight, the success of Ottmar Liebert's groundbreaking 1990 debut Nouveau Flamenco catapulted Higher Octave Music into one of the industry's top indie labels and introduced the instrumental world to a fresh, exotic sound unlike any other. Quickly hitting the pole position on Billboard's new age chart, the album took the world by storm. In the U.S. it was certified gold in 1993 and platinum in 1997, while achieving gold status in Canada and Mexico and platinum status in New Zealand and Australia. More than a simple repackaging of its best-selling release of all time, Higher Octave's re-release of the Nouveau Flamenco 1990-2000 Special Edition is a true treasure featuring vibrant new mixes of all the original tracks as well as six previously unreleased songs recorded before or during the original sessions. Though he has gone on to build an amazing catalog with Epic Records, Liebert's love for Nouveau Flamenco ensured his personal involvement in the new release. Gary Lyons, who engineered the guitarist's previous three albums, was hired to remix the old tracks and copy the songs from the original primitive 1/2" tapes they were on to 2" tapes. Liebert also got great joy out of rediscovering three songs that didn't make the original release, and three more that he recorded just prior to the Nouveau Flamenco project. These include the contemplative "Lonely Hours," the clap-along fun of "Morning Sky," the contemplative "La Memoria/Shadows," the gentle "Sudden Shadows," and the contemplative closer "Under Blue Moon" -- all fine, of course, but not quite on the melodic and rhythmic-hypnotic level of classics like "Barcelona Nights." The Nouveau Flamenco 1990-2000 Special Edition is nonetheless a great opportunity for both longtime and new fans to rediscover the magic of when Ottmar Liebert began his extraordinary journey. ~ Jonathan Widran
