Guitarist Charlie Apicella gets down to the gritty business of delivering variations of funk and soul jazz. Though Apicella’s playing style has been compared to that of Wes Montgomery, he also has an affinity for the music of Grant Green. It’s restraint—the precedence of the group over the individuals—that makes the band so tight.
This is simple, toe-tapping, head-nodding music, mostly blues and R&B-based. It’s not flashy or especially innovative, but it is fun, and that seems more to the point.
