Brian Patneaude
Riverview
WEPA

Albany-based tenor saxophonist-composer Brian Patneaude offers thoughtful, harmonically intriguing tunes executed by a fine quartet of organist Jesse Chandler, drummer Danny Whelchel and rising guitar star Mike Moreno. Flaunting a burly tone and a depth of feeling in his lines, Patneaude reflects the influence of Michael Brecker in both his playing and composing, particularly on the evocative waltz-time tune “By Reason of the Soil,” the driving “Jolo” and the uplifting title track. They also investigate Don Grolnick’s mournful “The Cost of Living” and Billy Strayhorn’s gorgeous “Chelsea Bridge.”
