Andrea Veneziani

“Veneziani is an assertive bassist with a strong, sharp tone. He solos superbly on Evans’ classic, “Time Remembered”.

Veneziani proves to be a distinctive tunesmith, with his scrambled and frenetic “Traffico”, his beautifully reflective “Night Flight” and “Mark Rothko”, his grey-shaded, minor key nod to the American abstract painter, which opens with a ringing bass solo.

Oltreoceano is a recording that demands multiple spins. New crags and facets of the music are revealed with repeated listening. Werner is exquisitely creative, and the trio is superbly interactive on this remarkable debut album from Andrea Veneziani.„

— Dan McClenaghan - All About Jazz

“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

“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
