“a rising star in the world of jazz violin and mandolin” -Downbeat Magazine
“Jason is easily one of the best jazz violinists and mandolinists of his generation.” – Christian Howes, Professor Berklee College
One of the youngest violin professors at Boston’s Berklee College of Music, Anick is considered “a rising star in the world of jazz violin and mandolin” (Downbeat Magazine). In addition to leading various groups under his own name 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 the Hartt Conservatory.
A versatile musician and sought after side-man, Anick has also shared the stage with an array of artist like Stevie Wonder, Tommy Emmanuel, Hamilton de Holanda, The Jim Kweskin Jug Band, John Sebastian, Delta Rae, and Ward Hayden and the Outliers. With performances all over the world from China, Europe, and Japan and renowned venues like the Montreal Jazz Festival, Blue Note, Smalls Jazz Club, Scullers Jazz Club, Yoshi’s, Iridium, TD Garden, Regattabar, NPR, and The Late Night Show, Jason has proven himself to be a leader in the ever-growing contemporary string world.
Over the past few years, Jason has been focusing on arranging and composing for the Rhythm Future Quartet, Jason Anick Acoustic Trio, and the Anick/Yeager Quartet. The Rhythm Future Quartet, which Jason started with Finish guitar virtuoso Olli Soikkeli, is rapidly becoming one of the preeminent Gypsy jazz groups in the country. The group just released its third album, “RFQ and Friends” which was praised by JazzTimes as “packed to the gills with feeling… dynamic, full of virtuosity and swing”. The Jason Anick Acoustic Trio, (The Rhythm Furture Quartet minus one guitarist), applies Jason’s formidable improvisational and compositional chops to the roots/fiddle music of his youth.
The Jason Anick Acoustic Trio will perform at Café Paradiso on Thursday, March 26th at 8pm. Tickets are $16 in advance (available at http://xn--cafparadiso-dbb.net/ and at Café Paradiso) or $20 at showtime.
