Patneaude's albums keep getting stronger with each release, and his signature sound on tenor more precise. Nice straight-ahead modern jazz. This track has a nice build, recede, build pattern that grips the ear. Jazz from the Albany, NY scene.
Saxophonist Brian Patneaude's fifth album features pianist David Caldwell-Mason (piano & Fender Rhodes), Mike DelPrete (bass), and Danny Whelchel (drums) performing a collection of original compositions and songs by Wayne Shorter and Bronislaw Kaper.

I love jazz because anything is possible; it has few rules and the best jazz breaks those ones. I prefer free improv because it doesn't really have any rules at all.
I was first exposed to jazz in my teens (in the late sixties).
The first jazz record I bought was Filles de Kilimanjaro by Miles Davis, shortly followed by Extrapolation by John McLaughlin.
My advice to new listeners is to listen as widely as possible and not to make snap judgments--stick with it.
