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 1960's 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. “As a player, Apicella immediately brings to mind Grant Green. He's funky, he's bluesy, and he's not afraid to get dirty at times. Apicella and band have that perfect jazz rapport that allows them to be tight as hell and play off each other beautifully." - Vintage Guitar Magazine.
