Andrea Veneziani

“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!„

“Veneziani’s swing factor is strong, his playing on the intimate numbers is responsive and conversational, and he’s a fearless improviser on the free pieces. A stellar debut.„
