Andrea Veneziani

“Veneziani is an assertive bassist with a strong, sharp tone. He solos superbly on Evans’ classic, Time Remembered.

Veneziani proves to be a distinctive tunesmith, with his scrambled and frenetic Traffico, his beautifully reflective Night Flight and Mark Rothko, his grey-shaded, minor key nod to the American abstract painter, which opens with a ringing bass solo.

Oltreoceano is a recording that demands multiple spins. New crags and facets of the music are revealed with repeated listening. Werner is exquisitely creative, and the trio is superbly interactive on this remarkable debut album from Andrea Veneziani.„

— Dan McClenaghan - All About Jazz

“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

“Of the standards, Monk’s Pannonica and Parker’s Segment stand out. One of Veneziani’s best pieces is the shimmering, mid-tempo Mark Rothko, which features a solo introduction by the bassist.„

— Jon Ross - Downbeat
