ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A POSITIVE FLOW-(the start of J.C. Bosco)-{Second Edition} produced by Josh Charles(Carealot Productions,12/15/04)is worth the listen. In fact, as a significant side note, most folks who've had the chance to hear APF's Second Edition as opposed to its original first release-(4/20/99) feel that it's an even more special recording by way of not only the sound quality, but in the few re-mixes, additions and re-mastering that JC feels is "just the right touch" now to make this recording fully completed--needless to say, the long awaited better recording equipment-(and more gained experience) has paid off-- not to mention the results of more recent recordings, plus works still underway. An important step in the development of JC's career, APF signifies "the Bosco"-(as JC affectionately calls it) with its unique, yet still universal concept. Starting out as mainly a performing unit in the late 80's, the Bosco was then "J.F. Bosco" which successfully gigged for a while and JC's careful crafting of originals continued to develop. Presently with APF's Second Edition CD--(as well as an upcoming CD in the works) JC has concentrated even more on the recording process, especially since he's mostly considered himself a bassist/singer/songwriter. This concentration has made things stronger with J.C. Bosco fully realized as concept--(there's also a Beatle cover: "Here, There & Everywhere" on the CD as well). In fact, ever since the tender age of 14, JC has written his own material and decided that music would be his "calling" in
life and hasn't stopped since. As well as the 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, JC 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. From there, it didn't take long for both to get into some "Jaco & Josh bass riffing" and they each spoke of "relative minor" and other interesting theory related bass chat, as well as some of Josh's favorite Weather Report tracks 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"-(though there are other musical
influences as well).

Conclusion: Indeed, Joshua Charles' A POSITIVE FLOW-(the start of J.C. Bosco)-{Second Edition} is worth that attentive listen and note that there's more to come!

Josh Charles did the digital mastering at Carealot Studios].

You can also find a cool review of APF CD at: http://www.aural-innovations.com/issues/issue11/bosco.html
and JC/JCB has also been spotted and reviewed in Progression Magazine, Acid Dragon Magazine, Voices 3-(www.paradoxone.co.uk/) as well as Garry Lee's "Radio Seagull"-The Overflow show and Progsheet. On top of that, you can find JCB at www.myspace.com/jcbosco and you can also go to Powervoltagerecords.com to hear a
few other numbers by JC-(as well as "People Listen!").JC is also noted at http://www.justoff.com and has worked with Russ Mate--(keyboards) on such tunes like "Blue Water". Both JC & RM have supported one another's music for sometime. You can hear some samples of RM's latest work, "Just Offshore" at the same address link, above.
Some of the latest with JC, is that he's completed some new recordings, like "Being in the Energy Funnel"-(JCB's 2nd CD) and has been proud of the fact that some of the moneys earned from sales of APF have been contributed to helping the victims of Hurricane Katrina. He's also done some gigs with a few cover bands helping out as bassist/singer as well as on acoustic guitar--(ELP and Led Zeppelin tributes among others).
JC also got to meet the legendary Keith Emerson and did a review of a few of his recent NYC appearances--
(go to: http://aural-innovations.com/main/whatsnew.html, then click onto where it says "click here" in yellow to return to the main AI page and then click onto "Alphabetical listing of all bands",etc. and find "E" for Emerson).

Happy listening and thanks for stopping by!!-:)

Still "a classic!!"...
Having heard Being in the Energy Funnel recently in full, perhaps it'll be easy for some folks to somewhat dismiss A Positive Flow as less well produced,etc. than Energy Funnel. But one thing you can't argue about where it comes to A Positive Flow: many of the songs on it were and are still classic!! (still) highly recommended!****

Jeremy R.--(Ragtime pianist)

This will always be a phenomenal CD to me!!
A Positive Flow--(especially the second edition) will ALWAYS be a phenomenal and great album to me!! There's a little bit of everything for just about everyone on this timeless CD and a sweet version of "Here, there & Everywhere" to boot! I give it a 5 star recommendation
all the way!!***** BUY IT
