Andrea Veneziani

“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 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

“This is a good record.„

— Olli Ervasti - Jazz Rytmit

“The Best Jazz of 2012. Acoustic Bass Album and New Talent.„

— Arnaldo DeSouteiro - Jazz Station

“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
