“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 conceived a mature album, where the trio develops a complex and open conversation based on contemporary forms as well as on elaborations of tunes of the jazz tradition.
Substantially, we hear that modern way to conceive jazz that could be defined outside of any style, but it’s well conscious of its linguistic origins.„
— Maurizio Franco - Musica Jazz
“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.„
