”I think you will find that “Sparks” will light the artistic fires of the soul and intellect.” Heartfully, YUSEF LATEEF.

“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 Magazine

“Charlie Apicella & IRON CITY are modern day stewards of trippy blues and psychedelic jazz... The body language in the trio’s music flexes with an array of trippy blues swirls and acid jazz vibrations that draw from the psychedelic era of the ‘60s, but the band infuses it with a modern draft that keeps it fresh...and speak in a dialect that modern blues fans can relate to and find engaging.” Susan Frances, JAZZ TIMES
