"Apicella is a lithe, swinging guitarist with an affinity for the contrasting styles of both Grant Green and Wes Montgomery...An all-around impressive debut by a guitarist of substance."
- Mark Gardner, Jazz Journal

"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

"What I love about Iron City's CD is the tight ensemble playing and well crafted solos. As a member of Grover Washington Jr.'s band we had the nickname "The Locksmiths;" we were so tight, yet responsive to the soloist. I feel Charlie's compositions capture the flavor of our music in the 1970s where you put the groove first."- John Blake Jr. Violinist and recording artist with McCoy Tyner and Grover Washington Jr.
