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

“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.„

— Bill Milkowski - JazzTimes

“A very nice first disc by Veneziani.„

A Jazz Listener’s Thoughts

“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
