“Oltreoceano is the wonderful self-produced recording debut of bassist Andrea Veneziani. The Italian-born, New York-based musician has a fantastic voice on the instrument and does terrific work as a composer make this a fantastic effort.„
— Glenn Daniels - The JazzPage
“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
“The musical dialogue between Kenny Werner and Andrea Veneziano appears to be very balanced.
The album appears to reflect at its core the spirit of Monk, Evans and Parker.„
— Ferdinand Dupuis - Jazz’Halo
