“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
“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.„
