Andrea Veneziani

“A solid, sitting down jazz debut, he teams with Kenny Werner, who brings the chops to keep the wheels on the track, and art is born.„

— Chris Spector - Midwest Record

“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!„

— Oscar Groomes - O’s Place Jazz Magazine

“This is a good record.„

— Olli Ervasti - Jazz Rytmit

“What I love most is the unusual makeup of his quartet, which includes Kirk Knuffke on cornet, Charlie Sigler on guitar and Allan Mednard on drums. You don’t often hear these instruments together in a small ensemble, and the resulting textures are especially tender and pensive on ballads and reverberating on uptempo pieces.„

— Marc Myers - JazzWax

“Bravo!„

— Jim Hynes - Making a Scene!
