Andrea Veneziani

“Bassist and leader Veneziani has a warm upright tone here reminiscent of the famed Bill Evans’ bassists. What makes Veneziani’s tone so rich is its warmth and ability to accompany like a vocalist rather than a metronome.„

— Marc Myers - JazzWax

“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

“Andrea Veneziani’s compositions are imaginative and lively, often constructed on the basis of danceable rhythms, and at the same time profound and trivial.

A mature and established composer and performer. I wish Oltreoceano will not be the last encounter with this talented musician.„

— Leonid Auskern - Jazz-Quad
