Liebert has released over 20 albums and received more than 30 gold and platinum awards. There is a change in the weather and sound for Ottmar Liebert's release entitled "Dune." Magic men are said to be drawn to the desert sands. Sometimes they come as sculptors like Christo that put up strange and beautiful environments that inspire. Sometimes they come as Native American medicine men or old Japanese Kyoto masters to meditate and postulate. And sometimes, just plain and simple great artists disguised as guitar players. Liebert's new release "Dune" sits firmly in the crosshairs of it all. Random beauty - airy, rhythmic and sometimes funky; sounds to put you inside of full and empty spaces, at the same time. Ottmar is always exceptionally brilliant and mysterious. There is a $45 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.

Liebert's new release "Dune" sits firmly in the crosshairs of it all. Random beauty - airy, rhythmic and sometimes funky; sounds to put you inside of full and empty spaces, at the same time. Ottmar is always exceptionally brilliant and mysterious. There is a $45 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.

L.A.: BAILEY & BROURMAN RELEASE NEW CD AT THE GARDENIA
CELEBRATING MARCH IS CABARET MONTH

Wendy Lane Bailey and Michele Brourman will be celebrating the release of their CD Breathing in the place where it all started, THE GARDENIA (7066 Santa Monica Boulevard, West Hollywood, CA - 323-467-7444) on March 7th at 9:00 pm. In love with music & lyrics, Wendy Lane Bailey has a powerful classic pop voice (think Ronstadt crossed with Adele with a bit of Patsy Cline thrown in for good measure), and a rather cavalier attitude towards the idea of "genre". Fusing elements of pop, jazz, country, folk, and musical theatre into a sound that is lush and romantic yet thoroughly contemporary, she makes the old sound new, and the new sound timeless. She firmly believes that a great song never really goes out of style, but can be reinterpreted to reflect changing times. Michele Brourman's songs have been featured in movies and television and the children's series "The Land Before Time" for which Brourman co-wrote and produced all the songs. As a pianist/musical director, Michele has worked with wonderful artists, including Dixie Carter, Bernadette Peters, George Ball, Lesley Ann Warren, Annie Potts and more, and played piano in Bob Dylan's band. She is best known for her song "My Favorite Year" which has become a standard in the world of cabaret. Call for cover/minimum information.

His legendary debut release, the double-platinum Nouveau Flamenco is the biggest selling guitar album in history. Liebert has released over 20 albums and received more than 30 gold and platinum awards. There is a change in the weather and sound for Ottmar Liebert's release entitled "Dune." Magic men are said to be drawn to the desert sands. Sometimes they come as sculptors like Christo that put up strange and beautiful environments that inspire. Sometimes they come as Native American medicine men or old Japanese Kyoto masters to meditate and postulate. And sometimes, just plain and simple great artists disguised as guitar players. Liebert's new release "Dune" sits firmly in the crosshairs of it all. Random beauty - airy, rhythmic and sometimes funky; sounds to put you inside of full and empty spaces, at the same time. Ottmar is always exceptionally brilliant and mysterious. There is a $45 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.

DC: GABRIEL ALEGRIA "AFRO-PERUVIAN SEXTET" AT BLUES ALLEY
CELEBRATING MARCH IS CABARET MONTH

Gabriel Alegria and the "Afro-Peruvian Sextet" will perform at BLUES ALLEY (1073 Wisconsin Avenue NW, Washington, DC - 202-337-4141 - / ) on Tuesday, March 5th with shows at 8:00 & 10:00 pm. Amidst the Afro-Peruvian Sextet's detailed fusion of Afro-Peruvian rhythms and jazz harmonies, lies a very authentic, "earthy" and honest interpretation. The extremes of Afro-Peruvian folklore from the coast and the spirit of jazz music coexist in a balance that is only possible by combining the types of charismatic (and idiosyncratic!) musicians that make up the Afro-Peruvian Sextet. The Afro-Peruvian Sextet was formed in January of 2005. Composer and trumpet player Gabriel Alegria made a long distance phone call to drummer Hugo Alcazar, his long time friend and band mate, and since that time the Afro-Peruvian Sextet has produced two albums and has performed more than 400 shows in North America and Peru. Call for cover/minimum information.
