About the Album

Formed in 2002, The Brian Patneaude Quartet has quickly become one of the most well-known jazz acts in upstate New York. The group's second WEPA Records release Distance is an organic blend of jazz styles, featuring accessible melodies and harmonic textures that will appeal to both the casual listener and jazz aficionado alike. The quartet continues to develop it's unique signature sound while employing new experimental textures, adding a fresh dimension to the sonic quality of their sophomore album. ... lyrical, melodic, musical, & tasteful. Every note has its meaning. Distance makes a statement - a beautiful one." - Jeff Waggoner - contributing writer, Jazz Times

"The group is extremely tight and its music is like nothing else. Sounding at various turns exuberant, soaring, grooving, or longing, it leaves you in suspense from one track to the next about what is going to happen. Even within a track, the music is never predictable, and many times the band's total sound can sweep you away." - AllAboutJazz.com

"Distance continues on in the pattern established by Patneaude's debut, seamlessly incorporating world rhythms and textures, tasteful shadings of free-jazz inspired oddity, and smoky slow groove, all of which are threaded together by Patneaude's unfailingly lyrical and melodic tenor." - Metroland, Albany, NY
