C.B.G (Celano/Baggiani Group):
In 2012 the band has taken a new form and will be working in quartet with some wonderful musicians: Joachim Badenhorst on tenor sax and clarinet and with Clemens van der Feen on double bass.
I have been working with Marcos Baggiani in this band for ten years now. We have produced 5 Cd’s and it has always been a pleasure and a great experience. We work in this band together with different musicians during the last 7 years the main core of the band has been Michael Moore on alt sax and clarinet, Gorka Benitez on tenor and flute and Sven Schuster on bass.
In 2011 Ellery Eskelin and Sylvie Courvoisier joined the band for the tour in Holland, it was a magic trip through the galaxy!
We have have gotten through the years a lot of positive reviews and reactions from the audience, you can read some reviews at:
This band started in 2011, it is a different trip working in a band with this guys!
The band: Ingrid Laubrock on saxophones, Guillermo Celano on guitar, Jasper Stadhouders on bass and Marcos Baggiani on drums.Lily’s déjà vu is about images. In a search for colors Lily creates a space where reality converges with dreams and spirituality, composed material melts with improvisation.
Doors that open us -band and audience altogether- to unexpected places, where everything takes another shape, or smells a bit like that old familiar coffee. Dwelling in the western world, perforating the walls of the spoken language . What is real? Moving music around and aiming for a raw naked sound the band opens every possibility to create a linking gate connecting our consciousness with the awareness of the universe. Music from another ass.
