    As the name suggests, jazz is the prime corner stone of this brand new musical quartet. The mixture of other genres intertwined within the original compositions, gives The Jazzy Devils a unique sound, thus a little" Devilish" in nature, off the beaten path.

    Presently based in the Bay Area, the band was founded by Peter Cor (Santa Cruz), keyboards and compositions. Gary Regina saxes, (Pacific Grove), on bass, Roxy McDaniel, and Renato Annicchiarico on percussion both from Santa Cruz, and Chris Miller from San Jose, rounds out TJD.

    Peter Cor's compositions are a reflection of his musical experiences which have taken him to 3 continents and brings together influences from many parts of the world. A native New Yorker, but also having spent time in Europe and in California, his music brings together many cultures and styles that he has performed throughout his career. You may hear classical influences, latin, funk, fusion, hip hop, and world music as well. He has composed material for Earth Wind & Fire, Lee Ritenour, Tuck & Patti, and many European artists as well. He has had his music placed in film and TV (Disney, Muppets From Space, The Bernie Mac Show).

    Gary Regina (tenor and alto saxes) is also an East Coast transplant who has lived in the Bay area for many years. Also a very versatile player, he has led several of his own groups and played in a variety of musical contexts as well. Able to jump from Hard Bop to Funk, to even Hip Hop, Gary brings a great deal of musicality to the group, and blends in perfectly with the other players.

    Roxy McDaniel grew up in his native Germany, but decided to come to the U.S. to pursue a musical career. He was so inspired by a performance of bassist Paul Jackson, who at the time played with Herbie Hancock, that he came to Santa Cruz, and took bass lessons from Paul Roxy who has played in various jazz and rock bands, and backed up artists like Ben E King, Chuck Berry, Kenny G, and others.

    Renato Annicchiarico is a native of Italy, but now resides in Santa Cruz. He has been performing both in Europe and the US, both live and in the studio, and has played on major TV shows in Italy. In the US, he has opened for bands like Spyro Gyra, UB40, Lee Ritenauer, and others.

    Chris Miller (drums) has had a multitude of musical experiences from West African Music, Jazz, Pop, and many others. He has played among others with Billy Preston, Glen Frey, Kenny G, ??. and has had his music placed in such film and TV projects as "Scary Movie2", "US SEALS", "Sex And The City"????. Chris has also traveled to the Senegal to study with master percussionists.

    The blend of all these musical experiences by the members of TJD help create an upbeat mixture of rhythms and melodies that will get your toes tapping for sure!

    CD Review
    by Sandy Shore of Smoothjazz.com

    Another score for Northern California... Monterey Bay area primarily. Founder/composer, Peter Cor (formerly Helios) put together some of the area's hottest players with this new ensemble specializing in sizzling hot Jazz (smooth and fusion). Fellow Pagrovian, Gary Regina on saxes (he often plays two at a time), Roxy McDaniel (Santa Cruz) on bass, Renato Annicchiarico (Santa Cruz) on percussion and Chris Miller (San Jose) on drums. Cor, a native New Yorker is a prolific writer who understands the importance of melody. The transplanted keyboardist blends his classical training with Latin, funk, hip hop and world music... Quite a concoction. Peter Cor has written material for Earth, Wind & Fire, Lee Ritenour, Tuck & Patti and many European artists as well as film and TV pieces (Disney, Bernie Mac Show, etc.). Members of the Jazzy Devils are all accomplished players... You can learn more about them on the JD website. The quintet may be calling themselves devils, but their music is rather heavenly... As far as the smooth grooves go anyway... Like the Spyro Gyra-esque "The Cad" and the super sax-infused, "Gone Funkin'" and the Smoothjazz.com Hotpick, "Night Groove", BURNING BRIDGES captures a piece of the Monterey Bay. The funkier and larger tunes, like "Big Air", "Spunk", "7th Avenue" and "Souldad" are devilish for sure and will most definitely appeal to fusion fans near and far. Regardless of the lack of commitment to commercial Smooth Jazz on the local radio airwaves, Monterey Bay is indeed all about the full spectrum of jazz and the Jazzy Devils embody this truth with their excellent debut effort. ~Sandy Shore
