“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
“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
“Oltreoceano is the type of record that will keep you interested from start to finish. Veneziani does a wonderful job, providing contrast and excitment in his repertoire. His trio features some of the modern jazz scenes finest musicians, making this record one certainly not to disappoint. Veneziani and the gang have accomplished what all musicians hope to share with their audience: creative, honest and genuine music.„
