J.C. Bosco

Ever since the tender age of 14, Josh Charles has written his own material and decided that music would be his "calling" in life
and hasn't stopped since. As well as his J.C. Bosco project for example, JC has played with The Harptones, 3rd Rail and other groups-- assisting as mainly bassist/singer. JC even also had slight stints with two late, great artists of their time-- Frank Zappa and Jaco Pastorius! With FZ, Josh recalls asking Frank--(at Manny's Music Store just after the release of "Apostrophe") a brief question about "Hot Rats" and then sat down to play an acoustic guitar he was trying out. A minute or two later, FZ sat right beside JC and they both did some cool riffing together for a bit! And.. shortly before Jaco Pastorius' tragic death, JC recalls Jaco storming into Matt Umanov's Music store and was struck immediately by JC's playing: "This guy can play!!" Jaco stated. After that, it wasn't long before interesting "Jaco & Josh riffs" were exchanged as they also spoke of "relative minor" and other theory related bass chat, as well as a few of Josh's favorite Jaco tunes like "Cannon Ball" & "Birdland". Both those incidents have influenced JC to continue his music even more and carry on with the Bosco concept that he now tags "Progressive/Experimental/ Pop-(or "P.E.P."-:) Many fans detect the early King Crimson, Pink Floyd and Frank Zappa influence among others, who have called the music "at least progrock based". You can find "A Positive Flow"-the start of J.C. Bosco-{Second Edition} at: and "Being in the Energy Funnel" at: Also you can by BITEF digitally on itunes and for example. Both these works are CD's that Josh Charles is proud of and they continue to inspire many who've taken a listen! - purchase yours today-(unless you already have-:)

There's more J.C. Bosco to come, so stop by at CD Baby or MySpace-( from time to time and we'll keep you updated. In the
meantime, happy listening!!
