The Rhythm Future Quartet
Kick off event for the 3rd annual Django By the Sea Gypsy Jazz Fest in October!
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.

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."

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.

For their debut self-titled album, the Rhythm Future Quartet decided to re-visit and record classic jazz and Gypsy jazz favorites. Through their intricate and creative arrangements, they have brought new life to songs like "Night and Day" and "Summertime." Coupled with musical sensitivity and virtuosity, the Rhythm Future Quartet's debut album acts as an enticing example of the future of Gypsy jazz music.
