MUSIC REVIEW BY George W. Harris, Jazz Weekly

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Guitarist Charlie Apicella is swinging like there's no tomorrow with a boogie-ing team of Gene Ghee/ts, Radam Schwartz/B3, Alan Korzin/dr and guests Mayra Casales/cong, Freddie Hendrix/tp and Amy Bateman/vi on this sizzling organ grinder.

The two horn front line with Hendrix and Ghee is a big and bold delight, with the team charging on "Three Sided" and macho on "Space Madness." The Latin "Hot Dog" sizzles like a street stand, as Casales' congas add extra mustard to the bun. Bateman's violin brings a gypsy spirit to the bluesy "Along The Southern Coast" and all along Apicella's pickings are filled with grinning delight, as on the hopping "Ironcity" and bouncy "Brother Elijah." The peanut butter and jelly sandwich of the B3 guitar/tenor sax combo never tasted better.
