Sarang Bang Records present Duga-3+, an expanded reissue Gianmarco Liguori's third solo album, Duga-3, originally released on the label in 2011. Duga-3, composed and produced by New Zealand-based multi-instrumentalist Gianmarco Liguori, was originally released in 2011 in an edition of 200 copies. The album quickly sold out, with original copies sought after by collectors and fans of Murray McNabb and Kim Paterson (who appear on the LP), both pioneers of jazz rock in New Zealand in the early 1970s. Co-producer Murray McNabb (1947-2013), keyboardist with legendary NZ jazz rock group, Dr Tree in the 1970s, recorded his album Song For The Dreamweaver with ECM artists Ron McLure and Adam Nussbaum in New York (1990), and had performed with the likes of Don Cherry, Ed Blackwell, Charlie Haden, Joe Henderson, and Sam Rivers. He was also a top-tier composer/arranger for film, television, and radio. Also features contributions from Brian Smith (Ian Carr's Nucleus, Keith Tippet, Centipede). Deluxe tip-on gatefold jacket.

"Gianmarco Liguori has created his own fascinating niche in music which exists at a place where jazz, soundtracks and improvised art music intersect -- mesmerizing, sometimes eerily ambient -- grounded in electronica soundtracks, experimental Miles Davis of the seventies, slightly funky eighties jazz-rock with a nod to minimalism and impressionism. Albums by Liguori offer the indefinable and stand at some distance from just about everything else going on in New Zealand music." --Graham Reid, NZ Herald
