Erasing Borders


“Guitarist Celano is the winner of the North sea jazz composition assignment this year…
His ten year old band with drummer Marcos Baggiani recently changed the lineup… New are bassist Clemens van der Feen and Belgian reed player Joachim Badenhorst and It appears to be a golden combination.
Celano writes tight. In most of the pieces there is a strange bridge, break, melodic quirk, rhythmic delay or acceleration, making his band members and the audience pay full attention to the music.
The music hosts an incredible freedom in the compositions, leaving enough space for the band members to express their idiosyncratic and intriguing ways of making music. The tension keeps you through out the concert at the edge of your seat…”” CD presentation at Lantaren Venster – Rotterdam. Tim Sprangers – de Volkskrant – 12 july 2013″

”The CBG is one of the most exciting and adventurous bands from Amsterdam. This powerful group moves beautifully between the composed and improvised parts. Their music blends many different styles, traveling throughout improvised music, rock, jazz, folk, and contemporary music; outlining a truly new energetic postmodern style”.
