Borrasca means tempest or storm, and that’s exactly what Ottmar Liebert and Luna Negra have created in the new age/world music arena. This CD had been eagerly anticipated and the reception was nothing short of phenomenal. This third release augments the “power-trio” approach of Ottmar with Jon Gagan (bass + keyboards) + Dave Bryant (percussion + drums) with special horn arrangements that lend an almost mariachi flavor and strong Latin appeal. Borrasca was nominated for a Grammy award and was certified Gold/USA + 4 x Platinum/USA Latin.
Total running time: 56:42
