HARD LOGIC REVIEWS
"awesome!!! ***** Wup.... Where did these guys come from? OMG...Excellent musicianship and very well written material. Are they on tour? Every track has great feel and hooky passages. It's amazing how these underrated jazz groups sound so incredible!" - middlec - iTunes Customer Reviews
"Here is a slap in the face for the "Jazz is dead" crowd. This funky New York jazz/fusion band performs original music with an original flair. By mixing more traditional instruments such as saxes and a strong bass with electronic winds and electric guitar, Hardlogic has achieved 21st century jazz that is in a class of it's own. Their unique music has not only kept them busy with local performances, it has gained them airplay on hundreds of radio stations around the world. To hear music from Hardlogic, visit http://www.hardlogic.net/. " - (Featured Band) The Indie Music Review
".... I really like "Group Theory" and after the second time I played it, I decided to get "Anytime, Anywhere" as well. Feel free to add me to your email list and keep cranking out good music. Hard Logic reminds me a lot of the groups that turned me to Jazz in the late 70s. At least to my ears, I'm hearing some Ritenour, Weather Report, Return to Forever, Crusaders and some other influences in your stuff. I like your sound and wish you the best of luck. I look forward to future releases."

"Well I’m back again and I have some great Jazz for all you music lovers out there. This band is called Hard Logic, and they are fronted by a fantastic sax player/ composer by the name of Paul DeLoria.
If you enjoy Jazz, Funk and Just good music, this show is worth a listen. Visit the website and check these guys out. I know you will approve." - Sounds From The Yellow Room - soundsfromtheyellowroom.podbean.com
"I love jazz! I just don’t get enough of it sent to me unsolicited. After getting this new CD from these up-state New York guys, though, I intend to make it a point to bring more jazz to the station in coming weeks, definitely! I picked this song because it has the most interesting name. Other than the brief appearances of someone’s dogs in the song, I’m not sure that it brings to my mind any images of Weiner Dogs, but, hey, that’s jazz. To each his own! These guys are awesome!" - Don Cudd, hosstheboss.com
"....Group Theory is the follow up to their debut recording Anytime, Anywhere, released in 2006. The group’s growth is clearly evident and their playing style takes on a more energetic, hard-driving sound. Tracks of special note are “Redemption,” “Shrivelspork,” “Grindage” and “Attack of the Weiner Dogs.” A great compilation of well-composed and executed music by a band that evidently has the chops and cohesion to make a mark in the world of contemporary jazz." - www.jazzreview.com
"Hard Logic is a jazz fusion band from Western New York, led by saxophonist Paul DeLoria and keyboardist Greg Gilmore, with guitarist Tony Castronova, bassist Davis Pinto, drummer Chris Dembeyiotis and percussionist/vibist Bob Accurso. All the members are quite talented players and they play very well together in performing the DeLoria/Gilmore-penned tunes. Their overall sound is similar to groups like the L.A. Express, the Rippingtons, FourPlay and Spyra Gyra with a heavy dose of Brecker Brothers funkiness.
"Crudites" starts things off in compelling fashion, with a welcome bit of toughness, while "Redemption" and "Shrivelspork" funks it up in a catchy and energetic manner that should appeal highly to fans of the genre. DeLoria's solos are tasty, while guitarist Castronova adds some burning fretwork. Meanwhile Gilmore centers the sound with an array of keyboard sounds and chops, and his rhythm mates are tight and propulsive in pushing the band forward.
The group doesn't settle for the easy funk route though and songs like "Low Tide" and "All Points South" explore an island sound and a touch of pop. The gospel inspired "Tastebuds" pleases the ear, while "Way Back North" and "Living Wall" of"er the more subdued melodic side. Finally, album finale, "Attack of the Wiener Dogs" ends things on a high energy note that should keep listeners coming back for more." - Brad Walseth, www.jazzchicago.net
"Lots of CD’s crossing my desk, so let’s get to it.
Jazz is certainly in the air with the Rochester International Jazz Festival line-up squared away and anticipation growing throughout the city. Add to that some cool saxophonists with recent releases, and it is jazz central here!
"Hard Logic leader, saxman Paul DeLoria dropped off the band’s exceptional new CD, Group Therapy. The all-original release is the band’s follow-up to 2006’s Anytime Anywhere, and continues their energetic foray into funky fusion. Hard Logic is already receiving international praise for their efforts, with a nice little feature in Italian mag, Emmek!. Catch the band at the Lilac Festival (5:30pm), opening for Phoebe Snow on Friday, May 9th........" - Michelle Picardo, Freetime Magazine
