Ottmar Liebert & Luna Negra - release their first new recordings since the award winning 2004 outing "La Semana. The Scent of Light available on CD through Burnside Distribution and as digital music files, via IODA Digital Distribution, on iTunes, amazon, emusic, Rhapsody etc. was recorded between Spring of 2005 and Spring of 2008. Ottmar says: "I figured 'One Guitar' was as minimalist as can be, 'Up Close' was the most minimalist one can be with a band (no overdubs, no editing etc.) and it was time to make the image large again. This album has a big sound and reminds me of The Hours between Night & Day which was recorded in Santa Barbara in 1993."
