Charlie Apicella & Iron City - Payin' the Cost to Be the Boss (2016)

Label: Zoho

"Apicella is a lithe, swinging guitarist with an affinity for the contrasting styles of both Grant Green and Wes Montgomery... An all-around impressive debut by a guitarist of substance." - Mark Gardner, Jazz Journal

"Apicella is a no-nonsense player of unquestioned chops and whose soul drips from each note... This is 'organic' music, and Apicella is an exciting young player." - John Heidt, Vintage Guitar
