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

“STERBEZETTING C.B.G. TEKENT WERELD OM ONS HEEN…Een vulkaan die telkens maar weer uitbarst. En de natuur daardoor voortdurend blootstelt aan nieuwe verschijningsvormen. Vervang de vulkaan door muziek en je krijgt hetzelfde effect, tenminste als je naar C.B.G. luistert: de Celano/Baggiani Group. In zes stukken laten de Argentijnse, in Amsterdam wonende gitarist Guillermo Celano en slagwerker Marcos Baggiani horen hoe de wereld om hen heen verandert en hoe zij daarmee muzikaal omgaan”…

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.

Hey People!

A new trio has been born and the CD is out!!!!!

If you are tired of this way of life and would like to move to another planet join us:


Wild Man Conspiracy

“Knots” (ClazzMusic 2014)

The Band: Gerard Kleijn on trompet, voice and effects, Joost Kesselaar on drums and Guillermo Celano on guitar.



The tour in the USA with Thelonious 4 feat. Tony Miceli was great, we had a lot of fun!


“…Oh! What a group! Time was upended, suspended, ingested and befriended … Playing an all-Monk program is an ambitious challenge for any and all who dare to try to have that much serious fun. This Pentagram of the Possible delivered a very satisfying evening of close listening and radical chances…”

Monique Avakian, Live at “Something jazz” on 19 oct 2013, New York City
