"Strolling patiently around his irresistible melodic hooks, Liebert has since become one of the most acclaimed and best-selling contemporary instrumentalists. Nouveau Flamenco announced not only an artist but a virtual genre. Still, Liebert is quick to admit that while traditional flamenco music intrigued him early on, he has simply used its rhythms and history as a basis for his own, more accessible pop sound. After recent excursions into classical and dance music, Liebert has returned to the simpler joys of his early '90s works with his new Innamorare/Summer Flamenco. But there are a few new exciting twists this time: a vibrant horn section and more of a focus on Carl "Cozmo" Coletti's trap-set rhythms, most notably. With their loping, gently swaying melodies punctuated by aggressive, percussive hooks, tunes like 'Verano de Alegria', 'Spanish Steps', and '2 the Night' are spirited. Liebert has always balanced his exuberance with touches of melancholy, but here, even reflective moments give way to optimistic glimmers. On tunes like the tribute 'Ballad 4 Santana', Liebert weaves his guitar gently around Jon Gagan's sly, mournful bass line before the horns spark a fire, which in turn spurs the guitarist on an upbeat tangent. With its brisk, 6/8 rhythm and colorful improvisations off a folksy melody, 'Alameda' is a mariachi-styled piece that contrasts dark and light to great effect. As a producer, Liebert likes to take chances with instrumentation to achieve particular moods. Indian tablas and Mike Middleton's muted trumpet spruce up the hypnotic atmosphere on 'Desert Elysian', while Eric Schermerhorn's twangy slide guitar adds a dash of cowboy spunk to 'Borboletta'. While the album is not the fiery brand of traditional flamenco, Ottmar Liebert here marries his fusion of New Age jazz with ethnic rhythmic structures, making seductively sensual music that captures the spirit of romance rather than the white-hot technical virtuosity of his peers."
