About our album “Erasing Borders” (2015)
“Erasing Borders, seven Celano compositions reflecting the human and ecological consequences of our lifestyle. Unlike obvious musical propagandists like Phil Ochs or Frederic Rzewski, Celano doesn’t use lyrics or melodrama to make his point. Instead his writing is concerned with nuance and suggestion”.
“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
“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.
“Strangely attractive music, first, for its happenstance, wild demeanor, and then with the passing of time, for the unexpected turns of phrase and tone that keeps the music fresh and exciting.”
This is jazz today, sept 2015, USA. Dave Sumner.
