Andrea Veneziani

Oltreoceano is the wonderful self-produced recording debut of bassist Andrea Veneziani. The Italian-born, New York-based musician has a fantastic voice on the instrument and does terrific work as a composer make this a fantastic effort.„

— Glenn Daniels - The JazzPage

“Veneziani conceived a mature album, where the trio develops a complex and open conversation based on contemporary forms as well as on elaborations of tunes of the jazz tradition.

Substantially, we hear that modern way to conceive jazz that could be defined outside of any style, but it’s well conscious of its linguistic origins.„

— Maurizio Franco - Musica Jazz

“The musical dialogue between Kenny Werner and Andrea Veneziani appears to be very balanced.

The album appears to reflect at its core the spirit of Monk, Evans and Parker.„

— Ferdinand Dupuis - Jazz’Halo
