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 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 prestigious 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.
Joseph has recorded fourteen CD’s and a DVD in a seventeen year period. It includes ten smooth jazz CD’s, two Christmas CD’s and two acoustic jazz CD’s. His newest CD, entitled, “The Invitation” features many new songs as well collaborations with pianist, Joel McCray. As well, he authored a fifteen year book project entitled, The Art Of Tone, Understanding Our Love For 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, Australia 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 celebrities 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 over $75,000 every year. More information on Joseph, his music and books, and his workshops are found at his website, www.josephvincelli.com and www.cdbaby.com. For booking Joseph, please call (214)906-1059.
