About the album

The very moment intuition, knowledge and craftsmanship collide as one the chain reaction creates an energy in which a masterpiece is created. The audience senses the quality of the event instantly, without any explanation. On this beautiful album we hear four masters at work in total synergy.

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.

Clearly a natural choice, the trio’s decision to have pianist Wolfert Brederode as a featured guest turns out to be perfect. Guillermo Celano, Marcos Baggiani and Joachim Badenhorst are true storytellers, creating their landscapes with a wide variety of shapes and colors.
I hope you enjoy this album as much as I do.
- Jasper Somsen
In dem Moment, in dem Intuition, Wissen und handwerkliches Können aufeinandertreffen, entsteht in einer Kettenreaktion eine Energie, die ein Meisterwerk hervorbringt. Das Publikum spürt die Qualität des Ereignisses sofort, ohne jede Erklärung. Auf diesem wunderschönen Album hören wir vier Meister, die in völliger Synergie arbeiten.
Carnet Imaginaire packt einen, zieht einen hinein und lässt einen bis zum Ende nicht mehr los. Wieder einmal bedarf es keiner Erklärung. Die Musik selbst gibt mühelos die Richtung vor. Der Zuhörer folgt der Führung jeder sorgfältig ausgearbeiteten Komposition und Improvisation dieser wunderbaren Musiker.
Die Entscheidung des Trios, den Pianisten Wolfert Brederode als Gast zu engagieren, hat sich als perfekt erwiesen. Guillermo Celano, Marcos Baggiani und Joachim Badenhorst sind wahre Geschichtenerzähler, die ihre Landschaften mit einer großen Vielfalt an Formen und Farben gestalten.
Ich hoffe, Sie genießen dieses Album genauso wie ich.

2013 gewann Guillermo Celano den Kompositionsauftrag von The North Sea Jazz und beschloss, zusammen mit seinem alten Freund und virtuosen Schlagzeuger Marc Baggiani eine neue Band mit Joachim Badenhorst an Tenorsaxophon, Klarinette und Bassklarinette und Clemens van der Feen am Kontrabass zusammenzustellen.
Als Ableger des Quartetts begann die Band 2016 als Trio ohne Bass zu experimentieren, diese unkonventionelle Besetzung zu erforschen und die kompositorischen und klanglichen Möglichkeiten des Trios zu erkunden. Im Jahr 2018 erschien ihr erstes Album als Trio "Lily & Marleen" über Clean Feed.
Während der Tourneen, die der Veröffentlichung des Albums folgten, nahm sich die Band die Freiheit, mit verschiedenen Musikern zusammenzuarbeiten, unter anderem mit Wolfert Brederode. Diese Zusammenarbeit stellte einen musikalischen Meilenstein in der Band dar und ebnete den Weg für ein neues und abenteuerliches Quartett.
"Überraschenderweise ist der Pianist Wolfert Brederode in das Trio aufgenommen worden. Das ist bemerkenswert ... der ECM-Künstler ist ein begnadeter Improvisator, der sich in dieser bemerkenswerten Combo sehr gut behauptet. Seine Beiträge sind abenteuerlich und wirkungsvoll "
Ihre Musik ist ein Amalgam aus verschiedenen Stilen, die durch die weitreichende Improvisationskunst der vier Interpreten verbunden sind."

Artist(s)

The collaboration of these three musicians has its roots in the group led by guitarist Guillermo Celano and drummer Marc Baggiani in Amsterdam: the C.B.G (acronym for Celano/Baggiani Group).

Celano and Baggiani met in 2001 in Amsterdam and a clear musical click put them immediately on the railways of a long term collaboration, immersed in the eclectic Amsterdam’s jazz/impro scene.

Since then they share a sound universe that has embarked them on various musical adventures. They have led several groups together, including C.B.G, Lily’s deja vu and Antimufa.

The recordings of the C.B.G have been released by CleanFeed, Kuai Music, Trytone Records,

MDR and BAU, collaborating with musicians such as Michael Moore, Ellery Eskelin, Natalio Sued, Gorka Benitez and Sven Schuster among others.

In 2013 Guillermo Celano won The North sea jazz composition assignment and, together with his old friend and virtuoso drummer Marc Baggiani, decided to bring together a new band with Joachim Badenhorst on tenor sax, clarinet and bass clarinet and Clemens van der Feen on double bass

In 2016 as an offspring of the quartet the band started experimenting as a trio without bass, researching this unconventional instrumentation and exploring the compositional and sonorous possibilities of the trio. In 2018 their first album as a trio “Lily & Marleen” came out through Clean Feed.

During the tours that succeeded the release of their album, the band took the freedom to collaborate with different musicians, among them Wolfert Brederode. That collaboration stood out as a musical milestone in the band, paving the way for a new and adventurous quartet.

“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 "
Their music is an amalgam of different styles, which are connected by the far-reaching improvisational art of the four performers”

... Here are four gifted narrators at work... Composition and freedom in the improvisational design are balanced on a high level...
Jazz' n More, 01-5-2022

... In contrast to the first film "Lily & Marleen" (2018), the new tracks appear the new tracks in the larger line up seem even more open and versatile.
Inmusic, 05-4-2022

... add Wolfert Brederode as a gifted improviser on the piano and let their detailed compositions and improvisations resound in lyrical intimacy...
NaDann, 25-3-2022

... 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...  
NDR Kultur Cd of the week, 04-3-2022

On this beautiful album we hear four masters working in perfect harmony. The album Carnet Imaginaire grabs you, pulls you in and won't let go until the end.
SK Jazz, 25-8-2022

... Between pointillist sound fabrics and more straightforward structures, wind player Joachim Badenhorst, drummer Marcos Baggiani, guitarist Guillermo Celano and Brederode create organically pulsating soundscapes that can be classified somewhere between chamber jazz and more experimental styles...
Concerto, 01-6-2022

... The pieces take their time, the spaces breathe deeply. There are free, lyrical breaks, sometimes a relaxed fusion feeling, then again adventurous detours and also a touch of imaginary exoticism...
Jazzthing 06 2022, 27-5-2022

... And so the music lives from a lot of spontaneously appearing design, from reinventing melody sequences, which cover everything from beautiful to abstract...
Musikansich, 20-3-2022

... The individual tracks are performed perfectly, with an authentic message and at the highest artistic level. The production and the sound of the album also deserve recognition.
