Andrea Veneziani

Oltreoceano is a stunning debut and should quickly have Veneziani as a bassist to watch in the near future. Andrea Veneziani is far more than the next flavor of the month hanging out in odd meter or getting bogged down in a variation on the speed is king mentality. Veneziani is a prolific talent both as an instrumentalist and as a composer and Oltreoceano is indeed one of the very finest trio releases for the year.„

— Brent Black - Critical Jazz

“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

“Veneziani’s swing factor is strong, his playing on the intimate numbers is responsive and conversational, and he’s a fearless improviser on the free pieces. A stellar debut.„

— Bill Milkowski - JazzTimes
