"I'm a big fan of Liebert's music, so I bought this dvd expecting to listen to it peacefully at home trying to relax myself, only to be INTERRUPTED by a comentary in the middle of my favorite song "snake charmer" what a shame... With this dvd you just have to skip and skip in order to find the music...Also, I find it just too short, just about six songs...very dissapointed."
Talented Artist, Great Music

"Great music and an interesting look at this artist. Liebert fans will appreciate this DVD with its exceptional sound and a visual view of one of his concerts. I personnally have not had the pleasure to see him perform live in concert, so I enjoy this DVD as a nice compromise. Anyone who has not seen or heard his music, I recommend that they take a gamble and get this DVD to listen to his music and see his style. He's an accomplished musician, and his music is original and very enjoyable."
Interviews interrupt the music

"I agree with everyone about the quality of the recording and performance. The problem that is all too common with music on video is the talk that interrupts the flow of the music. Even worse is when a tune is cut short so we can hear talk. DVD has the capability of alternative tracks so one can hear the interesting talk when desired. I doubt anyone will desire to hear this great music interrupted by talk on each playing. This seriously compromises the enjoyment that would have been so much greater with this beautiful performance."

"Acclaimed guitarist Ottmar Liebert and his band, Luna Negra, perform their unique flamenco-tinged jazz artistry live at Calgary's Centre for Performing Arts. Most of the tracks performed come from Liebert's 1996 Grammy Award nominated album, OPIUM, but some older hits like 'Snakecharmer' and 'Barcelona Nights' are also included. In addition, there is some candid documentary footage of Liebert's life in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he gathers much of his musical inspiration.
Performances include Lush, Butterfly + Juniper, Snakecharmer, Serenity On Ultracloud, Yasmeen, Bombay, Alegria Arabe, Duende Del Amor, and Barcelona Nights"

"For those who like to take a break from the noise once in awhile, this is a pleasant DVD. Sound and vision are great. Rather soothing!"
