Rhythm Future Quartet

 

Saturday, September 5th at 7:30pm

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 that draw from rhythms heard around the world. The Boston Globe says “Rhythm Future Quartet breaks new ground for Gypsy jazz”.

“Collective jaws dropped at the sheer virtuosity of The Rhythm Future Quartet! The group's stellar musicianship, good humor and reverence for this important musical tradition made for an unforgettable evening!” – Dana Packard, The Saco River Theatre

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. Olli, who recently made the move from his home country of Finland to New York City, is rapidly becoming a top call guitarist in the bustling Brooklyn jazz scene and has been aptly coined “the Finnish boy wonder”. Jason, who is an award winning composer and “easily one of the best jazz violinists of his generation”, according to Christian Howes, is also one of the youngest professors at the esteemed Berklee College of Music in Boston.

Brandon Music audiences will know bassist Greg Loughman from his performances with the John Funkhouser Trio and Bourbon Renewal with Britt Connors. Guitarist Max O'Rourke is a native of Rutland, Vermont currently attending Berklee College of Music.

Over the years they have individually performed alongside notable musicians such as John Jorgenson, Stochelo Rosenberg, Frank Vignola, Tommy Emmanuel, Bucky Pizzarelli, Andreas Öberg and Howard Alden.

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 Quartet's debut album acts as an enticing example of the future of Gypsy jazz music.
