Andrea Veneziani

“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

“Bassist Andrea Veneziani leads a trio with Kenny Werner and Ross Pederson that shows the heart of a bopper as well as the mind of an experimenter.

Joy abounds with a dash of extra spice on this trio outing!„

— George W. Harris - Jazz Weekly

“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.„
