The Jazz Session #28: Brian Patneaude

SOURCE: Published:
On the new episode of The Jazz Session, Jason Crane interviews saxophonist and composer Brian Patneaude. His new quartet album is called As We Know It (WEPA Records, 2007). Patneaude was born and raised near Albany, NY. He's chosen to make his musical stand in Albany, and the choice is paying off. Patneaude is a busy musician, whether it's his weekly residency at famed Albany jazz club Justin's or his continuing gig with Grammy-nominated Alex Torres and His Latin Orchestra. As We Know It features seven strong compositions by Patneaude, and some inspired playing by his regular working band and guest pianist Dave Payette.
