“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
“The Best Jazz of 2012. Acoustic Bass Album and New Talent.„
— Arnaldo DeSouteiro - Jazz Station
“The Andrea Veneziani Trio, with the Italian bassist joined by pianist Kenny Werner and drummer Ross Pederson, exudes great spirit amidst dynamic interplay on the self-produced Oltreoceano.
This calling card of an album makes for most enjoyable listening, and is worth seeking out, particularly for jazz piano trio fans.„
