A LITTLE BIT ABOUT PAUL CHRISTIAN DELORIA
Most recently known as leader of the six member jazz fusion group Hard Logic, www.hardlogic.net, this is Paul's first solo CD. It was released in 2001 and was Paul's first release before forming Hard Logic in 2002. Paul focuses much of his time on Mama Llama Records and Hard Logic's tour schedule, and helping his wife Jody and her dance studio. Check out Hard Logic's current CD "Group Theory" available at cd baby.
A native of upstate New York, Paul DeLoria would make his mark in the Rochester area at a very young age. Winning every local talent contest with his original piano pieces and taking first chair positions in all-state ensembles on the saxophone, it would be when Paul hit the club circuit that people would really be shocked. His first original group ,The Banchees, played the New York area sharing the stage with members of Spyro Gyra, and other well known upstate New York jazz groups. Leaving New York in 1995 with a degree in Music, Paul went on to Nashville to pursue a degree in Recording Engineering at Middle Tennessee State. In Nashville he would meet jazz pianinst Walt Scott and form the group Freedom Jazz Planet. This Group toured the Nashville region with guest artists from all areas including Stanley Jordan, Nioshi Jackson, and Reggie Wooten of the Wooten Brothers. Jamming in Nashville clubs with members of Take Six, Joseph Wooten of the Steve Miller Band, Jack Pearson of The Allman Brothers, JD Blair (Drummer for Shania Twain), and Keith Horne (Bassist for Trisha Yearwood). Also soaring on the blues scene with recording artists Big Mike and The Bootie Pappas. He would end up on several Gospel, Blues, and Jazz recordings and Nashville television spots including a stint with the Blues Brothers for the opening of the new stadium in town. Storming the live club scene with his firey sax style and his upfront stage presence, Paul eventually toured around the east and ended up back in the Rochester area. On his trips back and forth is where he wrote most of the songs on this album. Inspired by the Nashville music scene, the CD contains many Nashville sounds including banjos, accordians, and strumming acoustic guitars. This sound blends the styles of Dave Koz, The Rippingtons, Kenny G, and Spyro Gyra with movie like thematic melodies. The entire CD appeals to a wide range of listeners ranging fom Jazz, New Age, Classical, to Fusion, Smooth Jazz, and Piano Intrumental lovers. Check it out and hope you enjoy.
