ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Joseph Vincelli's signature is his passion towards his music. It is evident on the stage, in his recordings, with his speeches and in his books. What sets him apart from other smooth jazz artists is his ability to create music from an array of sources which many others would consider stretching the limits.

Joseph is a native of New Jersey, although the Dallas Morning News has fondly embraced him as a long time resident of Texas. After spending his childhood in
Eatontown, a community along the Jersey shore, he studied in Boston at the prestigous Berklee College of Music. It is here that he learned a deep appreciate for the art of improvisation. Joseph took his knowledge and set off for New York City and Los Angeles, giving him many career opportunities.

During this ten year stint, he toured and recorded with Buddy Miles, Ice Cube, Bobby Goldsboro, Jerry Vale, and Burt Reynolds. Also, Joseph wrote for several film scores and movies, commercials, and jingles. Looking for a quieter life, he moved to Dallas, Texas where he currently resides. The desire for Texas did not change his New Jersey dialect, but it did change his career in a big way.

Joseph has recorded ten CD's in a seven year period. It includes seven smooth jazz albums, two Christmas CD's and a classic Jazz CD. As well, he recently has finished a fifteen year project, a three volume book series entitled, My Friend, Music. Joseph does not limit his talent entirely to the stage of entertainment. He devotes time to giving master classes to students interested in the industry of music. As well, he continues to write music and books for future recordings and publications.

Joseph has toured extensively throughout North America and with visits to Brazil, Venezuela, England, Italy, and South Africa. Joseph's diversity with the art of music has given him such honors as the 1998 recipient of the Scott Joplin Award for achievement and the 2000 Hall of Fame winner at the Clearwater Jazz Holiday festival.

Although, Joseph cooks on stage, his first love at five years of age was a fascination for food. He continues to use cooking and eating fine cuisine as a source of creativity. More recently, he has developed benefit concerts and contests that bring celebritites and top chefs together in order to raise money for young performing artists, including the Kids Who Care Performing Artists Foundation, in Fort Worth, Texas, which raises tens of thousands of dollars every year. More information on Joseph, his music and books, and his cooking ideas are found at his website, www.josephvincelli.com.

Review:

The City of Houston Was Hit By A Direct Jazz Attack
This Performance Was One of the Best Concerts Seen To Date

Concert Review by: Sheldon Nunn

Venue: The Cullen Performance Hall (Houston, Texas, United States)

April 23, 2005 - To set the stage for a hot night of prolific jazz, saxophonist Joseph Vincelli served as the opening act for the so-called 'Jazz Attack Tour' that fell upon the University of Houston. With Joseph serving as the opening act, a hotbed of jazz-oriented funk ensued. Although he had been to Houston at various times during his career, I had not had the luxury of seeing him during a live performance. Having said that I must admit I was quite impressed with Vincelli's remarkable talent. First and foremost, Joseph is one of the most intense funkmeisters around today, yet he also has the innate ability to tone his sound down to a sensual melodic groove. His high octane opening was dynamic, energetic and rhythmic by any measure; on top of that, as a stand alone performer he can truly hold his own. By the time he finished his act, the capacity crowd in the Hall was fully prepared for what was to come thereafter. A fully prepared table of some of the most prolific jazz around today was a sound worth hearing, as well as a sight worth seeing, especially when experienced in the guise of Joseph Vincelli. From the very start the crowd had already been left standing by Joseph Vincelli, and was out of breath by the time Peter White came on board.

This Life
This is one of the most excellent, smooth, romantic and awe-inspiring compilations of musical artistry. I have only had it a short time, but have played it so much that I may need to order another copy. I also ordered one for a co-worker who really really enjoyed it. I look forward to ordering more from this artist in the future.
