“ … lyrical, melodic, musical, & tasteful. Every note has its meaning. Distance makes a statement - a beautiful one.” -- Jeff Waggoner - contributing writer, Jazz Times

“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 Magazine

Formed in 2002, The Brian Patneaude Quartet has quickly become one of the most well-known jazz acts in upstate New York. The group was named “Best Jazz" by Metroland Magazine in 2003 & 2004 and has performed at countless venues throughout the Northeast, including a weekly Sunday night residency at Albany, NY's most respected jazz venue – Justin's. The quartet's critically acclaimed 2003 debut recording Variations (WEPA Records) featured a flowing, straight ahead jazz sound with subtle hints of fusion and 20th century classical music.

Now in 2005, the group has unveiled it'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.

For Saturday's CD Release Party, the quartet will feature Brian Patneaude (tenor saxophone), George Muscatello (guitar), Ryan Lukas (acoustic bass), Danny Whelchel (drums) and special guest Dave Payette (piano & fender rhodes).

On the morning of 3/19, Brian will be a guest on Bill McCann’s “Saturday Morning Edition Of Jazz” on WCDB 90.9 FM in Albany, NY from 10:00am - 12:00pm where he'll be discussing Distancce as well as playing the album in it's entirety. Tune in via the web at: http://www.albany.edu/~wcdb/
