Andrea Veneziani

“Veneziani is an assertive bassist with a strong, sharp tone. He solos superbly on Evans’ classic, “Time Remembered”.

Veneziani proves to be a distinctive tunesmith, with his scrambled and frenetic “Traffico”, his beautifully reflective “Night Flight” and “Mark Rothko”, his grey-shaded, minor key nod to the American abstract painter, which opens with a ringing bass solo.

Oltreoceano is a recording that demands multiple spins. New crags and facets of the music are revealed with repeated listening. Werner is exquisitely creative, and the trio is superbly interactive on this remarkable debut album from Andrea Veneziani.„

— Dan McClenaghan - All About Jazz

“A solid, sitting down jazz debut, he teams with Kenny Werner, who brings the chops to keep the wheels on the track, and art is born.„

— Chris Spector - Midwest Record

“The Italian, US resident double bassist/composer’s trio debut features his mentor Kenny Werner, and alternates between Monk-esque bop and something more meditative.„

— Selwyn Harris - Jazzwise
