Formed in 2002, the Brian Patneaude Quartet has quickly become one of the most well known jazz acts in upstate New York. Their music is an organic blend of modern jazz styles, featuring accessible melodies and harmonic textures that appeal to the casual listener and jazz aficionado alike.
The group’s close-knit musical relationship and seamless interplay is a result of performances at numerous venues throughout the Northeast. Highlights include recent performances at the Kingston International Jazz Festival, Albany Riverfront Jazz Festival, Troy Savings Bank Music Hall, Guilderland Performing Arts Center, WAMC Performing Arts Studio, A Place For Jazz Concert Series, Albany’s “Lark Fest”, Saratoga’s “Final Stretch Street Festival” and a seven year weekly residency at one of the Capital District’s most highly acclaimed jazz venues - Justin’s.
The quartet has been repeatedly cited as “Best Jazz Group” by the writers and readers of Metroland magazine and has gained increasing attention, both nationally and abroad. Tracks from the group’s CDs have been played on over 50 radio stations worldwide, including the nationally syndicated “Jazz After Hours” with Jim Wilke and “Listen Here!” hosted by Neil Tesser & Mark Ruffin.
