Hi guys,

I’m happy to announce that the new CD of the band is out by Trytone records (March 2016).

“Les indignés”

Ellery Eskelin on tenor, Guillermo Celano on guitar, Clemens van der Feen on bass and Marcos Baggianion drums.

Listen to it:

Hereby some recent reviews of the album:

“Les Indignés is so beautifully complex that it could be described in language a sommelier may use. There are moments of wistfulness that sit apart from grooves and occasional free blowing and shredding guitar. Five of the eight compositions are quite lengthy and thus open themselves to the patient development of ideas and alternative directions. Some of the ironies that are baked into the composition titles, play themselves out in the paradoxical paths the music follows. As that sommelier might say, the music breathes with life”.

KARL ACKERMANNmay 2016, All About Jazz.

“A CD that Largely meets all the expectations of a jubilee CD and certainly will be one of the most interesting jazz releases of 2016. The music never loses its heat , impressionistic collective passages are followed by powerful solos”.

Cyriel Pluimakers, Jazzenzo, march 2016.


Check this new and fun project!!!

I’m happy to announce that my new CD

“Erasing Borders” is out by Trytone records.


Joachim Badenhorst on tenor sax and clarinet, me on guitar, Clemens van der Feen on double bass and Marcos Baggiani on drums

Reviews about the album

“Celano spices his cohesive compositions with stylistic quirks, creating intensely melodic and refreshing frameworks for improvisation – a rare gift…”Amsterdamse Chacarera” mixes chacarera with Dutch new jazz – Argentine melancholy and nuevo tango make for a surging apotheosis of dance”…

The Wire. Andy Hamilton, United Kingdom, july 2015

“A volcano that erupts over and over again, mother nature constantly exploding into new forms. Replace the volcano with music and you get the same effect, at least if you listen to CBG: the Celano / Baggiani Group. Erasing Borders is an amalgam of different styles, which are connected by the far-reaching improvisational art of the four performers. Without exaggeration, you may call the C.B.G. a “star line-up”.

JazzNu, Rinus van der Heijden, Nederland, juny 2015

“Erasing Borders is C.B.G.’s  fifth album, and testament to their maturity as a unit”….

Dalston Sound, Tim Owen, United Kingdom, july 2015.

“Impetuous jazz with an statement… Imaginative, with compositions influenced by improv and displaying the individual qualities of the quartet”.

Jazzenzo, Nederlands, june 2015 by Erno Elsinga.

“This is both Argentine and Amsterdam music, that much is clear… “Erasing Borders” is a varied album, with heavy grooves, rough tenor saxophone solos and electronic pedals violence alongside graceful, playful and funny moments”.

Herman te Loo, JazzFlits, Nederland, June 2015.
