Andrea Veneziani

“A solid, sitting down jazz debut, he teams with Kenny Werner, who brings the chops to keep the wheels on the track, and art is born.„

— Chris Spector - Midwest Record

“With Oltreoceano, Veneziani has a chance to reflect on the last couple of years through sensitive arrangements that display his penchant for composition. After a brief interlude, the album opens with Night Flight. The piece is a Veneziani original presented in 3/4 time. It is light and opens with delicate piano before the entrances of Veneziani and Pederson set up an easy groove. The double bassist’s playing is warm. Another Veneziani original, In Viaggio con Te, invokes a number of time signature shifts. It moves effortlessly from a melodic opening waltz to 5/4, 7/4 and 4/4, all while keeping its pure tone and delightful musicality.

With a firm sense of jazz history and a desire to cross oceans of sound, Veneziani’s Oltreoceano is a swinging entry in what should be a very exciting career for the bassist.„

— Jordan Richardson - Canadian Audiophile

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.„
