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.

Jason Anick and Olli Soikkeli, the front-men and lead soloists of the group, are rising stars in the world of Jazz and Gypsy Jazz. Olli Soikkeli, 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 Anick, who is also an award-winning composer, is one of the youngest professors at the esteemed Berklee College of Music in Boston.
