the first time I heard Ottmar was when we were newlyweds and I worked at Wine Wizards in Stockton. Come to think of it, I could write an entire blog on the Wine Wizards experience and the characters involved with this fun wine/cheese bistro.
Anyhow, the owner (let's call him "Larry") was a connoisseur of fine wines, cheese and great music. He typically played jazz and classical music (Stan Getz, Dave Brubeck, et al). So, one day I stumbled across the Ottmar CD and I have loved his nouveau flamenco style ever since.
Several long time readers of theMangoTimes and lovers of Wine Wizards will appreciate my excitement. a great gift from a great wife!
I'll write my review next week.
