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

“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

“Veneziani conceived a mature album, where the trio develops a complex and open conversation based on contemporary forms as well as on elaborations of tunes of the jazz tradition.

Substantially, we hear that modern way to conceive jazz that could be defined outside of any style, but it’s well conscious of its linguistic origins.„

— Maurizio Franco - Musica Jazz

“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.„

— Stuart Kremsky - International Association of Jazz Record Collectors

“The musical dialogue between Kenny Werner and Andrea Veneziani appears to be very balanced.

The album appears to reflect at its core the spirit of Monk, Evans and Parker.„

— Ferdinand Dupuis - Jazz’Halo
