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

“Veneziani’s solos are as beautiful as the dancing of a big carp.

The aesthetic of the music contained in Oltreoceano is very delicate and strong at the same time. The whole album has a peculiar, indescribable suggestiveness and it’s moisture is special. Moreover, it’s heart and soul put into the movements of a plain natural posture, but it never goes too dry or too introspective. That means it is very well balanced throughout the whole album, like romanticism with a part of amusement. This music is fantastic.„

— Catfish Records

“This is a good record.„

— Olli Ervasti - Jazz Rytmit
