Hello there!

The New CD of the C.B.G is out throught Trytone records:

Last month We've got a couple of reviews:

“The music never loses the heat; impressionistic collective passages are followed by powerful solos.
A recording that largely meets all the expectations and certainly will be one of the most interesting jazz releases of 2016.”

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, De subjectivisten

“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, march 2016.

+ And from 2014 records (it took me some time to translate it :-), a quote of a nice french review of Lily's deja vu CD "music from another ass" by David Cristol for Impro Jazz. Please check the whole review here.

"Their mix of rock/impro/jazz pleased the ears because of its substantial content and because they never loose the essence of the matter"
"As the instrumentation links to rock, the incisive and de-fat guitar solos and the compositions are surprisingly elaborate and rich in contrasts; the enlighten shifts succeed to create impressionistic passages and rhythmic shoving, sometimes within the same sequence... A production worth of recognition"
