Andrea Veneziani

“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

“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

“Best of 2012.„
