The event, based on in-the-round performances at the famous Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, seats songwriters in a circle where they take turns playing their songs. The audience is seated around the performers, lending a more intimate feel to the show.

The Rhythm Future Quartet

The seventh season of Jazz at the Arsenal featuring Berklee faculty artists continues with 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 Ivan Pena on guitars, and Greg Loughman on bass. Over the years, they have been performing individually 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.

Anick and Soikkeli, the frontmen 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 Wall Street Journal calls 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 Anick, who is also an award-winning composer and Berklee instructor, received critical praise from the Boston Globe, which stated, “Jason’s compositional voice is as distinctive as his virtuoso playing.”
