One of the youngest instructors at Boston’s Berklee College of Music, Jason Anick is considered “a rising star in the world of jazz violin and mandolin” (Downbeat Magazine). In addition to leading his own contemporary jazz ensemble and performing with the Rhythm Future Quartet (RFQ), Jason 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. Recently, Jason has been focusing on arranging and composing for RFQ, which he started with Finnish guitarist Olli Soikkeli, and which is rapidly becoming one of the preeminent Gypsy jazz groups in the country.
With performances all over the world from China, Europe, and Japan and renowned venues like the Montreal Jazz Festival, Blue Note, Scullers Jazz Club, Yoshi's Jazz Club, 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. He is also a sought-after educator who has taught jazz violin and mandolin at string camps, workshops, and clinics around the world. Last but not least, Jason grew up playing twin fiddle and jamming with Andy Reiner.
