The Rhythm Future Quartet

The Rhythm Future 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, received critical praise from the world-renowned Boston Globe which stated, “Jason’s compositional voice is as distinctive as his virtuoso playing.”

Rhythm Future Quartet

Jason Anick on violin, Olli Soikkeli on guitar along with Vinny Roniolo on guitar and Greg Loughman on bass are magic. I was privileged to see them perform live recently and to say they were very well received is an understatement. The virtuosity displayed by Jason and Olli is truly amazing. There are a lot of very talented musicians today, but these two are nothing short of genius.. Let me add that Vinny and Gregg are equally talented and provide a rock solid foundation for this amazing quartet. These four masters together are making music that will be studied in years to come when the music Professors of the future speak about the major forces behind the continued development of jazz. Their approach is fresh, tastefully done and masterfully performed. I highly recommend their CD, and if you get the opportunity DO NOT miss a chance to see them in person. I'll be looking for their next CD!!
