Charlie Apicella & Iron City are a torch bearer of the classic guitar/organ sound and GROOVE MACHINE is a return to form for the New York guitarist’s catchy, swinging original compositions. Straight out of the classic 1960s hard bop era and showcasing the band’s deep interplay, the 3rd recording by Apicella, organist Radam Schwartz, saxophonist Gene Ghee, and drummer Alan Korzin, is packed with burning solos, Charlie’s tight arrangements, and an unrelenting groove that defines the character of Iron City. Special guests include Freddie Hendrix on trumpet, Mayra Casales on congas and violinist Amy Bateman.
