It is not an exaggeration to say that last year’s SRT audience was in a state of euphoria for the duration of the concert. Be sure to witness the return of this thrilling quartet!
When four young jazz virtuosos decided to join forces, the Rhythm Future Quartet was born. Named after a Django Reinhardt tune, the Rhythm Future Quartet performs dynamic and fiery arrangements of Gypsy jazz standards and original compositions.
The quartet features Jason Anick on violin, Olli Soikkeli and Vinny Raniolo on guitars, and Greg Loughman on bass. Over the years they have individually been performing alongside notable musicians like John Jorgenson, Frank Vignola, Tommy Emmanuel, Bucky Pizzarelli, Andreas Öberg and Howard Alden and have finally joined forces to form this special group.
Jason Anick and Olli Soikkeli, the front-men and lead soloists of the group, have been receiving critical acclaim this past year and are considered ‘rising stars’ in the world of Jazz and Gypsy Jazz. The prestigious Wall Street Journal proclaimed, “Olli Soikkeli, is a riveting Finnish guitarist who combines astonishing dexterity and speed with pure soul in a way that places him among the worthiest current day successors to the legacy of the great Django.” Jason Anick, who is also an award winning composer and Berklee College of Music Instructor, received critical praise from the world-renowned Boston Globe which stated, “Jason’s compositional voice is as distinctive as his virtuoso playing.”
