“Bassist Andrea Veneziani teams up with drummer Ross Pederson and featured pianist Kenny Werner for Oltreoceano. It is an excellent blend of originals and standards in a variety of tempos. They really swing on the cover of Charlie Parker’s Segment and Traffico, one of Veneziani’s originals. Each of the trio gets time in the spotlight and all are up to the challenge making this a formidable effort!„
— Oscar Groomes - O’s Place Jazz Magazine
“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
“Best of 2012.„
