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

“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

“A very nice first disc by Veneziani.„
