Andrea Veneziani

Oltreoceano is a stunning debut and should quickly have Veneziani as a bassist to watch in the near future. Andrea Veneziani is far more than the next flavor of the month hanging out in odd meter or getting bogged down in a variation on the speed is king mentality. Veneziani is a prolific talent both as an instrumentalist and as a composer and Oltreoceano is indeed one of the very finest trio releases for the year.„

— Brent Black - Critical Jazz

“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 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.„
