We have got also a nice review of it, here a little quote:

"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 rele
ased 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.
"  Ben Taffijn 11.7.16,

You can listen to the whole concert at Bimhuis Radio!!

Our little jubileum tour took us in different constelations to Tivoli - Vredenburg (Utrecht), Lantaren Venster (Rotterdam), De Ruimte & Huis de Pinto in Amsterdam, Roscam (Bruxelles), Jazzathome Fest. (Mechelen) and Bimhuis (Amsterdam)

+ The C.B.G has also harvested some more reviews of our last 2 releases:

Les Indignés by Karl Ackermann, may 2016, All About Jazz
Ellery Eskelin | tenor, Guillermo Celano | guitar, Clemens van der Feen | bass,  Marcos Baggiani | drums.
“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”.

And New York City Jazz Records about the album “Erasing Borders" C.B.G released in 2015 by Trytone.
Joachim Badenhorst | clarinet, bass clarinet & tenor sax, Guillermo Celano | guitar, Clemens van der Feen | double bass and Marcos Baggiani | drums
“Erasing Borders, seven Celano compositions reflecting the human and ecological consequences of our lifestyle.
Unlike obvious musical propagandists, his writing is concerned with nuance and suggestion...”
Ken Waxman, New York City Jazz Record. May 2016
