The best live jazz in South Jersey
Charlie Apicella and The Iron City Quartet
Friday, May 10, 2019
Join us with gifted jazz guitarist CHARLIE APICELLA in our series' third spring show. His IRON CITY QUARTET INCLUDES well-known saxophonist GENE GHEE, and veteran jazzmen RADAM SCHWARTZ, organ, and drummer ALAN KORZIN.
"Vintage Guitar" music critic John Heidt wrote: "Apicella is an exciting young player...a no nonsense player of unquestioned chops...whose soul drips from each note..."
With mentoring from jazz greats Yusef Lateef, Pat Martino and Dave Stryker, Apicella's star in jazz circles has risen quickly. With a a half-dozen leader recordings to his credit already, and a growing number of engagements scheduled at important jazz venues, our series is happy to celebrate the May release of his latest CD, "Groove Machine," at our show.
