“An euphonious birthday”
More than ten years ago guitarist Guillermo Celano and percussionist Marcos Baggiani formed C.B.G (or Celano/Baggiani Group) a collective of varying constellations… Time for a party with few of the musicians they have played together in the last years and with whom they have released six CDs: reed players Joachim Badenhorst and Michael Moore, bassist Clemens van der Feen and saxophonist Natalio Sued as a surprise guest…
… with a pleased heart we walked out into the night.”
You can listen to the whole concert at Bimhuis Radio!!

…“Les Indignés, like splashing Tabasco sauce on Dutch herring… mouth-watering and ear-pleasing shapes”…
Ellery Eskelin on tenor, Guillermo Celano on guitar, Clemens van der Feen on bass and Marcos Baggianion drums.
Have a listen!!
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 ACKERMANN, may 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.
“Their blend of diverse styles brims with suspense… The music tells a vivid story without any words. Enjoy!”
Jan Willem Broek, march 2016, subjectivist. nl
“You listen, as it were with the musicians, discovering what is possible in all within this combination of world-class musical personalities”
Herman te Loo, JazzFlits No 255, march 2016.
