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

Composed by Brian Patneaude, 2005 Gates Drive Music BMI

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
