CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR VENEGONI''S OPEN ROAD...

To anyone who is a fan of Bela Fleck, Chick Corea or Pat Metheny, Venegoni''s work is a must. A musician''s musician, Venegoni is a master at one of the world''s oldest instruments, the dulcimer.
- NY Village Voice

Venegoni has taken the dulcimer into the realm of fusion, and has extended its harmonic possibilities in a manner no less revolutionary than Hendrix did with the guitar.
- Piero Scaruffi, Chicago Tribune

Excellent! Venegoni sees the dulcimer as having sounds unheard. With gusto, imagination and invention, he brings exciting new music from what resembles a miniature version of the insides of a piano.
- The Indianapolis Star

This is jazz of a different color. It is easy to find sax players - David Sandborn, Kenny G. and Wayne Shorter rank among the best - and guitarists like Mike Stern and Al Di Meola. But I defy you to find someone who bases all his work around the dulcimer. Joe Venegoni is nothing if not original.
- The San Francisco Chronicle

Open Road is one of the Top 10 Albums of the Year. The performance is tight, imaginative and skillful. There is always something unexpected or arresting to savor.
- Richard Price, Bay Area Music Magazine

Describing the music on Venegoni''s recordings, or in one of Venegoni''s live performances, one tends to revert to "motion" words such as "propulsion" and "momentum" and "flow." Venegoni''s compositions might convey the feeling of a purposeful departure, and the gathering momentum of an eventful journey, with fleeting, lyrical reflections along the wayside. This sense of motion in his music no doubt makes a forceful play upon the imagination of his audience.
- from "Music In Motion" by Paul Harris
