NEW CD "ALL AROUND US" NOW AVAILABLE The new album is now available! All Around Us is a collection of six brand new original compositions as well as arrangements of Wayne Shorter's "Juju" and Bronislaw Kaper's "Invitation" featuring David Caldwell-Mason on piano & fender rhodes, Mike DelPrete on acoustic bass and Danny Whelchel on drums & percussion.
A collaboration of jazz tradition, new creative influence, and personal evolution ... This is jazz with a solid vision: clear and forward. - Examiner.com
The album is the best in Patneaude’s decade-long career, with songs drawn from life and given life by this crisp and seasoned ensemble. - The Daily Gazette Evocative of Chris Potter, Michael Brecker, Mark Turner and Joshua Redman.
Thank you to everyone who joined us at the Massry Center for the Arts to celebrate the release of All Around Us. It was an incredible evening and we couldn't have done it without you. Here's some video footage of the performance:
