Forensic is an album by German jazz saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock, which was recorded in 2003 and released on the British F-IRE label, a musician-run company associated to the F-IRE Collective.


The All About Jazz review by Chris May states "Mysterious, moody and close to the edge, Forensic plays like a new take on the noir tradition. It's astringent and shadowy, like you'd expect from noir, but it's also visceral, hot and exhilarating, like you probably wouldn't. A new noir for a new world disorder."[1]

In a review for The Guardian, John Fordham says "Some of the music is spookily dark and sepulchral, some of it delicately eccentric, some spun as slowly and symmetrically as a web, and the cello of Ben Davis is a constant source of both fresh melody and subtle timbres."[2]
