One of the youngest instructors at Boston’s Berklee College of Music, Anick made a name for himself in the world of jazz violin and mandolin when, in 2008, he was recruited while still a senior at Hartt Conservatory to tour with Grammy-winning guitarist John Jorgenson’s Quintet. He went on to record on Jorgenson’s CD “One Stolen Night,” which was named one of the top 10 albums of 2010 by both the LA Times and Acoustic Guitar Magazine.
Since that time Jason Anick has recorded 2 CDs as leader of his own group. His CD ‘Tipping Point’ received high praise from many in the field of Jazz. More recently, Anick and three other young jazz virtuosos joined forces and named for a Django Reinhardt tune, The Rhythm Future Quartet was born. Their first self-titled album has received worldwide critical acclaim.
Having this quartet of virtuosos playing music from the same period in time when many of the Museum’s art was created may offer interesting insights. This is an event one should not miss.
The performance is co-sponsored by Ogunquit Performing Arts and the Ogunquit Museum of American Art.
Ogunquit Performing Arts is a not-for-profit, tax exempt, all volunteer committee of the Town of Ogunquit.
