Andrea Veneziani

“Though his disc with Werner is called Oltreoceano (which translates as “overseas”), it sounds very New York to American ears with Werner playing some of his most adventurous and challenging work in a long while.„

— Jeff Simon - Buffalo News

“Bassist and leader Veneziani has a warm upright tone here reminiscent of the famed Bill Evans’ bassists. What makes Veneziani’s tone so rich is its warmth and ability to accompany like a vocalist rather than a metronome.„

— Marc Myers - JazzWax

“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

“B+.„

— Tom Hull - Tom Hull on the Web

“What I love most is the unusual makeup of his quartet, which includes Kirk Knuffke on cornet, Charlie Sigler on guitar and Allan Mednard on drums. You don’t often hear these instruments together in a small ensemble, and the resulting textures are especially tender and pensive on ballads and reverberating on uptempo pieces.„

— Marc Myers - JazzWax
