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 Jimmy Grant 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.

An evening of Gypsy Jazz with... The Rhythm Future Quartet

One of the youngest instructors at Boston’s Berklee College of Music, Jason Anick is rapidly making a name for himself in the world of jazz violin and mandolin. In addition to leading his own ensemble and performing with the Rhythm Future Quartet, Anick has been touring and recording with Grammy award-winning Nashville guitar virtuoso John Jorgenson since 2008 when he was recruited while still a senior at Hartt Conservatory.  He went on to record on Jorgenson's latest CD One Stolen Night, which was named one of the top 10 albums of 2010 by both the LA Times and Acoustic Guitar Magazine. Jason's composition "Occupy" won 3rd place in the 2013 international songwriting competition in the jazz category.

Words of Praise:


The Wall Street Journal wrote “Olli Soikkeli, 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 is a "Rising Star" in the Annual Downbeat Critic's Poll.

"The young Berklee instructor’s accomplished second CD, “Tipping Point,” on which his compositional voice is as distinctive as his virtuoso playing"

The Boston Globe


"Loughman delivers not only the bass foundation for the pieces rhythms, but also over and over again intriguing, melodic, cleanly stated solos. If [he wasn't] teaching in Augusta, Maine... [he] no doubt would be continuing to develop a solid reputation in New York.”

-Bill Donaldson, Cadence Magazine, 2011


“Loughman swings with something close to nonchalance... but can equally arrest the listener’s attention with his deeply resonant soloing.”

-Paul Donnelly, jazz critic, ejazz news  2004

Olli Soikkeli was born in Nurmes, Finland in 1991. Now based in New York City. He started playing guitar at age of 12. After a few years of playing Olli was introduced to the music of great Django Reinhardt and Gypsy Jazz has been Ollis main focus ever since. Soon Olli was playing in jazz clubs and festivals all around Finland.


Despite his young age he’s already played with stars such as Bucky Pizzarelli, Andreas Öberg, Samson Schmitt, Anat Cohen, Tommy Emmanuel, Paulus Schäfer, Antti Sarpila and Marian Petrescu.


In 2011 Olli recorded his first album "Trois Générations" with Hot Club de Finlande and Vitali Imereli and in 2012 he recorded his second album "Kouvola Junction" with Paulus Schäfer and Arnoud van den Berg.


2014 Rhythm Future Quartet's debut album was released.
