5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish Jazz July 2, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
THE BUSINESS is a solid hit for Charlie and Iron City. This fine ensemble - Charlie Apicella, guitar, Dave Mattock, organ, Alan Korzin, Drums, Stephen Riley, tenor sax, and Mayra congas and percussion - is polished to perfection on this album. The title song, 'The Business', was written by Charlie Apicella as well as '64 Cadillac' and 'Ironcity': organist Dave Mattock contributes his composition 'The Shaw Shuffle'. One would expect these four works to shine particularly brightly, but the groups also interprets some old standards with equal supple effect. 'Can't Help Falling In Love' is a rich ballad played for passion by Charlie and the group.

There is something unique about their sound that is hard to pinpoint. Suffice it to say that they interweave as a unit with great finesse and provide easy listening jazz that will likely satisfy all tastes in the jazz lovers category. The recorded sound is immaculate - this ensemble feels like they are in the room with us, and that turns out to be a special treat. A new group that deserves our attention! Grady Harp, July 11

Charlie Apicella & IRON CITY - THE BUSINESS: I've been reviewing this group since way back (2009) in issue # 88 (once a year, actually, looks like), & they are STILL cookin'! They play that bone-chompin' kind of jazz that goes equally well with a bottle of Rolling Rock down&funky as on Cantaloupe Woman) or th' smooth uptown strains of Glenlivet (definitely groove city, as on "Ironicity") ! The key thing about the flavor of jazz they play (Charlie on guitar, Dave Mattock on Hammond organ, Alan Korzin on drums, Stephen Riley on tenor sax & Mayra Casales on congas/percussion) is that it's totally ACCESSIBLE - this is the kind of stuff I grew up on, & these guys have taken th' roots, dressed it up in 21st Century clothes & made it WORK for listeners of any stripe. I give them my MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, as well as an "EQ" (energy quotient) rating of 4.99... they also get the "PICK" of this issue for "best all-around jazz"! Rotcod Zzaj
