Presenting our new CD: Una Noche en Bimhuis (Kuai Music)
“The result is unmitigated personality. Songs often reveal traits not immediately hinted at, and the initial direction a tune takes is rarely the same it ends with. This live set at Amsterdam’s famed Bimhuis is free and unbound and strangely tuneful when least you’d expect it.” Bird is the Worm 21/8/17
Michael Moore, Joachim Badenhorst and Natalio Sued on Reeds, Clemens van der Feen on double bass, Marcos Baggiani on drums and me.
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”…
“Erasing Borders is C.B.G.’s fifth album, and testament to their maturity as a unit”….
“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.
Guitarist Guillermo Celano is the winner of the North Sea Jazz composition assingment 2013.
and with Clemens van der Feen on double bass.
“From almost unfathomable orgy to peaceful interaction…”
