Ligro - Dictionary 2

SKU MoonJune 047
"MoonJune Records continues its streak of astonishing musical discoveries from Indonesia with Dictionary 2, the first international release by Jakarta's celebrated jazz-rock trio, Ligro. Founded in 2004 by authoritative guitarist Agam Hamzah and rounded out by agile bassist Adi Darmawan and exhilarating drummer Gusti Hendy, Ligro when read backwards means "crazy people" in the Bahasa (Indonesian national) language – but crazy in the very best sense of the word: signifying fearlessness, playful abandon, and a healthy disregard for shopworn musical conventions.SpacerOn Dictionary 2, the trio blazes through eight volcanic studio performances of highly-creative collective compositions. Propelled by the volcanic guitar excursions of Hamzah, Darmawan and Hendy make the trio pulsate and breathe like a single organism. Impressively tight and appealingly loose, Ligro combines the energy and enthusiasm of a basement jam session with the technique of players thoroughly grounded in the best of contemporary instrumental music.SpacerEchoes of Hendrix, Lifetime, Buckethead, Fripp, vintage Rypdal, and the more adventurous precincts of progressive rock and jazz prevail -- including Miles Davis, who gets a sly nod in "Miles Away" -- in this arresting combination of the raunchy and the sophisticated that delivers an electrifying jolt to the field of global fusion."
