Andrea Veneziani

“Though his disc with Werner is called Oltreoceano (which translates as “overseas”), it sounds very New York to American ears with Werner playing some of his most adventurous and challenging work in a long while.„

— Jeff Simon - Buffalo News

“With Oltreoceano, Veneziani has a chance to reflect on the last couple of years through sensitive arrangements that display his penchant for composition. After a brief interlude, the album opens with Night Flight. The piece is a Veneziani original presented in 3/4 time. It is light and opens with delicate piano before the entrances of Veneziani and Pederson set up an easy groove. The double bassist’s playing is warm. Another Veneziani original, In Viaggio con Te, invokes a number of time signature shifts. It moves effortlessly from a melodic opening waltz to 5/4, 7/4 and 4/4, all while keeping its pure tone and delightful musicality.

With a firm sense of jazz history and a desire to cross oceans of sound, Veneziani’s Oltreoceano is a swinging entry in what should be a very exciting career for the bassist.„

— Jordan Richardson - Canadian Audiophile

“Of the standards, Monk’s Pannonica and Parker’s Segment stand out. One of Veneziani’s best pieces is the shimmering, mid-tempo Mark Rothko, which features a solo introduction by the bassist.„

— Jon Ross - Downbeat
