Ligro - Dictionary 3 (2015)

The third album from this band from Indonesia.

The band is a trio with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass and guitars.

A guest artist, ads piano and keyboards on the first composition.

Ligro is one of the Asian jazz bands signed on the highly influential MoonJune Records. A label who has been giving us lots of jazz, ethno and fusion albums during the last twenty years.

I reviewed their second album Dictionary 2 many years ago and very much liked that album.

Ligro deliver up a harsh, dystopian blend of fusion and jazz on this album. Just as they did on their first albums too. 

The music is pretty fast and pretty hard. Very hard at times.

There is a lot of avant-garde references here and the power trio also shows a more pastoral side of themselves now and then.

The result is a good album which makes me wonder if this band is still around. I hope they are as their three albums has been good to great.

This scene benefits from the presence of bands like Ligro.
