Horn-Drum || Album presentation


Sued/Baggiani 1st duo album ready to come out on El Negocito.

The release concert will be on Oct 10th 2022 at  Klankhaven in Antwerp!!

"Pure music in this duo. Pure beauty" Oscar Jan Hoogland

For the past 25 years these 2 Amsterdam based Argentineans have played and toured together extensively within different formations, delighting audiences with their singular and mutual music understanding, appearing at many major festivals as well as intimate club spaces.
They have just recorded an inspired new album from the guts of the pandemic period.



Natalio Sued: tenor, saxophone & clarinet || Marc Baggiani: drums

Badenhorst/Baggiani/Celano feat. W. Brederode

De Bijloke (BE)

In addition to the release concerts at Bimhuis Amsterdam, De Bijloke Fest. (Gent BE), 
inJazz and North Sea Jazz Festivalthe album has got an exceptional attention from the media:


..."The music of this new quartet has an edge, a fringe of adventure, experiment and the essential humor... the musical wheels work together like a machine" Jazzflits #375 - Herman te Loo

------------------------------------

"This is indeed an unusual band and quite unpredictable music.
The pieces take their time, the rooms breathe deeply. There are free, lyrical breaks, sometimes a blended warm feeling, then again adventurous detours and a touch of imaginary exoticism.
Definitely special." HJS - Jazz Thing

------------------------------------




"... Elegant melodies peel out of stumbled sequences of beats, great melancholic themes grow out of quiet banter, enigmatic voices murmur and lament, tribal beats seek their way in the diffuse sonic interference fire of manipulated saxophone and manipulated guitars…" album of the week at NDR Kultur (DE)

------------------------------------

“Four gifted narrators are at work here, less interested in the plot than in the colours and contours of their musical images.
Composition and freedom in the improvisational design are balanced at a high level.
Perhaps it is precisely the abrogation of such contraposition that pulls the listener under a mysterious spell, in a music that is constantly floating but never drifts away.”
  Ruedi Anlki - Jazz n More

------------------------------------

"The amalgam of styles and the genre-bending are characteristic of this group of musicians. Musical categories are abandoned and boundaries overruled.
Surprisingly, pianist Wolfert Brederode has been added to the trio.This is remarkable ... the ECM artist is a breed improviser who holds up tightly within this remarkable combo. His contributions are adventurous and effective "
  Concert review Paradox - Louis Obbens - DraaiOmJeOren

------------------------------------

“When you think of impressionism, you quickly think of soundscapes, but the variety of sounds and the build-up of tension is simply too great for that.

They feel just at home in a highly ordered environment as in a fully unpredictable territory, the rightful domain of improvisers.” Ken Vos - Jazzism


---------------∞¬∞-----------------

Jerboah is planing a recording session in the fall of this year.
Besides working in the new material, we’ve made few videos to share our music with you.



And we are playing on September 23rd at the Nebular Sessions at De Ruimte!

---------------∞¬∞-----------------
Talking about recordings:


This unique improv-noise power duo featuring Michael Fischer on tenor sax and feedback (and yours truly on drums) has just finished mixing what it will become their 2nd album, featuring a very special guest: Vinicius Cajado on double bass.



Last year, amidst our trio tour that took us to ArtActs Festival in St Johann (A) Fluc in Vienna and at Zajkert | Noice Garden Museum of Modern and Contemporary Arts in Debrecen (H), We entered the recording studio.

Please check the results here:


We are still looking for a label, so if you want to help us with it, don't hesitate to make contact!

---------------∞¬∞-----------------


During these pandemic/cloistered times I decided to build up a BandCamp page presenting my releases that were not available to download otherwise. (also few of my colleagues, why not?)

Renewable is the name and this is the link: https://renewable.bandcamp.com/

I hope you enjoy it

Badenhorst/Baggiani/Celano feat. W. Brederode



"Carnet Imaginaire grabs a hold on you, pulls you in and doesn’t let you go until the very end.
Once again there’s no explanation needed. Effortlessly the music itself shows the direction.
The listener follows the lead of each carefully crafted composition and improvisation, by these wonderful musicians." -- Jasper Somsen

Sued/Baggiani 1st duo album ready to come out on El Negocito in May/June 2022!!


For the past 25 years these 2 Amsterdam based Argentineans have played and toured together extensively within different formations, (The Ambush Party and Antimufa among others) delighting audiences with their singular and mutual music understanding, appearing at many major festivals as well as intimate club spaces.

Iman Spaargaren's Undercurrent Orchestra got a bunch of nice reviews for his recent release at Zennez Records.


Featuring an incredible 6tet, Iman will present this album at Utrecht Jazz Festival on May 14th.

 Iman Spaargaren - clarinet, tenor sax and bass clarinet, Gerard Kleijn - trumpet, Joost Buis - trombone, Annie Tangberg - cello, Guillermo Celano - guitar, Marcos Baggiani - drums

London Jazz News (UK)
"That’s a whole bunch of see-sawing moods expressed through ensemble, solo and group improv, impressionistically slipping between thoughtful arrangements, loose affiliations and uninhibited free music, all suspended over an eclectic set of rhythms. The Orchestra, enthusiastically underlined by drummer Marcos Baggiani, picks and mixes beats from samba, railways, Saharan caravans and horseback."

---------------∞¬∞-----------------

Talking about recordings:




The Ambush Party  has just recorded in studio their Broken-Cumbia repertoire (indeed half Party-half Ambush)  We are in the process of selecting the material and mixing, stay tuned!

The Ambush Party are: Natalio Sued on tenor sx, clrnt and vocals; Oscar Jan Hoogland on piano and shouts; Harald Austbö  on cello and vocals and yours truly on drums and moos.

..."This is not the usual way for latin jazz, I rather hear classical latinamerican styles such as tango and bolero mixed with contemporary and improvised music... a good example of the way in which improvisation brings new life into a tradition.

the music is greatly enriched by all these influences…  And Méndez is a beauty of a singer” 


Live @ Pletterij || Ben Taffijn - DraaiOmJeOren - Aug 2020




Working against all odds in these pandemic times we succeed to make these videos, please check them out.


 
Fuensanta Méndez (México): vocals & double bass
Guillermo Celano (Arg/NL): guitar
Marc Baggiani (Arg): drums

Where intuition and awareness play together, voices, drums, and strings mingle in a freedom dance.
Fresh, riotous, rooted, sometimes abstract, sometimes avant-garde or wacky, always beating.
Argentinian rhythms, Mexican boleros and originals seasoned with soundscapes, poetry, absurdism, improvisation and a non-challant postmodern approach.

Martín Sued Bandoneon, Natalio Sued Clarinets, Guillermo Celano Guitar, Adán Mizrahi Double Bass, Marcos Baggiani Drums

+ last year Antimufa released a new album in a full house at Bimhuis.

The new album Grillos featuring Martín Sued on bandoneon got two more reviews:


"Antimufa brings us an Argentinian narrative in nine unique stories of contemporary fairy tales and pure passion. 

Grillos is a source of inspiration."

september 2019 -Robin Arends - www.jazzradar.com


“…splendid melodies and beautiful interplay... a wonderful example of the relationship between Latin American tradition and jazz…”

Ben Taffijn - DraaiOmJeOren- Aug 2020


Antimufa music is now digitally distributed by Audio Maze.
You can listen to it here or get the CD here.

+ Another release from last year got an interesting review by Fernando Rios:


"Excellent music on this remarkable, delicate work with no empty words. 

A journey beyond talent through one of those albums that reward with unveiled surprises every new listening. 

Where is our home? BBC Trio wonders. They answered it themselves. In the music my friends… In the music."

Coming September we will get in the studio again to record new material with a special guest on piano: Wolfert Brederode.

This collaboration had already being on stage last year in Paradox, Tilburg, fortunately we've got a sharp review of that concert:

"The amalgam of styles and the genre-bending are characteristic of this group of musicians. Musical categories are abandoned and boundaries overruled.
Surprisingly, pianist Wolfert Brederode has been added to the trio.

“…refined soundscapes treated in such a way that a delicious, almost non-abstract happiness remains.” Jazzism ****1/2 Ken Vos #01- 2019

---------------------

Lili & Marleen is a beautiful continuation of a discography that these gentlemen can be proud of.
The new album, which is released by the Portuguese label Clean Feed, elaborates on previous work, but it all sounds more intense, compact and mature.
The trio is perfectly capable of turning inside out a famous song like Lili Marleen (the WW II classic ‘Lili Marleen’)...
  JazzFlits, Herman Te Loo, NL

-----------------------

The sound of the trio is almost like their presence itself, deeply human. Together, they create a unique music world in which we can trip through time amid our own emotions”  Sightsong, (JP)

-----------------------

“Their catchy tempos and deep melodic reveries present an approachable demeanour, but it isn’t long before wild divergences and curious eruptions of volatility take over, leaving a paradoxical amalgamation of just what is what. The resulting confusion is the source of this album’s charm.The perpetual challenge of reconciling the embraceable passages with those more abrupt and acerbic is a limitless source of fun and intrigue” Birth is the worm, D Sumner, (U.S.A).

-----------------------

“This is smart and interesting music. Modern jazz with a very open perspective.
The three artists meet for a wonderful journey through the land of music, touching on a number of musical influences through their compositions, and adding joyous improvisations welcoming other cultures and people and sounds into their idiom. The music is genre-bending, with little tunes and compositions that sound vaguely familiar, as if taken from our common unconscious and reformatted into something more modern and exciting.”
 Free jazz Blog ****1⁄2 Stef Gijssels, Jan 2019 (BE)




-----------------------

“You hear 3 sound magicians who, to their heart's content, search for the unexplored areas, looking for the ultimate structures that can give them and the listener the necessary pleasure. Anyone who has already wandered around the labyrinths of these borderline sound manipulators should definitely experience the band live. Let's talk jazz G T Briquet. Dec 2018, (BE)

-----------------------

“Playful and capricious. Marcos Baggiani, Guillermo Celano and Joachim Badenhorst work together on a unique balance of composition and improvisation that feels as recognisable as strange. That in turn ensures that you, as a listener, are also forced to keep on raising your ears and discovering that special synergy.” Enola - Guy Peters - 11 jan 2019

-----------------------

“Playful Jazz from Amsterdam.
The music was eclectic and postmodern and the result was a quite blatantly applause. Some compositions come from their own pen, while others are finely crafted from pieces by such diverse authors as Misha Mengelberg or the modern classic György Ligeti.
Conclusion: A fine, in the best sense entertaining concert with musicians, which you will surely hear in the next years at the big European festivals”
