Badenhorst /Baggiani /Celano


Joachim Badenhorst: clarinet, bass clarinet, tenor sax

Guillermo Celano: electric guitar

Marcos Baggiani: drums



This trio is delving into a re-imagination of the boundaries between improvisation and composition, of abstract sound explorations and harmonic passages.

Joachim Badenhorst’s (Antwerpen) work ranges from solo improvisation, collaborative encounters and project with John Butcher and Paul Lytton, to compositions for his septet Carate Urio Orchestra.

Dividing his time drifting between Belgium and different cities in the US and Europe, Joachim continues to attempt at a more intimate and site-specific aesthetic language that can resonate with different audiences.

Guillermo Celano and Marcos Baggiani are known personalities in the Amsterdam improvisation scene, but also proved their enormous flexibility by being active in the most divergent scenes.

Among other projects they share, they co-lead the C.B.G (Celano / Baggiani Group), a very active formation now a days celebrating their 10th anniversary with Michael Moore and Joachim Badenhorst on reeds and Clemens van der Veen on bass; being the last two the regular members of the band since they did the North Sea Jazz Composition assignment in 2013.

As an offshoot of the C.B.G, Celano/Badenhorst/Baggiani is opening different musical spaces for these strong personalities, taking off from the unconventional instrumentation and exploring the horizons of the postmodern-creative music.
