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.

Learning Jazz gave me a masters degree in music. Jazz is American Classical Music, came
out of a need to be heard, to be understood, a voice when black America did not have one.
This is why the music is more than just an art form, it was created from blood, guts and heart
of those who suffered in this world. Its not to be taken lightly. If you do take it lightly it will
never sound right. Thank you to all the courageous musicians who made the world hear
them, their innovation came out of their experiences of the time that they lived. A treasure to
the world. American Classical Music. Imitate, Assimilate, Innovate a quote by Clark Terry.
