Jason Anick Quartet
The Jason Anick Quartet is an ever-revolving group of some of the best young jazz musicians in New England. The group performs uniquely arranged standards along with founding member Jason Anick’s eclectic and soulful compositions.
The group got together in January 2012 to begin recording Anick’s second album as leader, Tipping Point (February 18, 2014), blending Anick originals that openly incorporate the influences of mainstream jazz, classical, new acoustic music, Gypsy jazz, swing, and hard bop with a wide-ranging swath of jazz classics.
“Jason Anick’s sheer joy in playing is evident from the first track on his new recording, “Tipping Point”. While tipping his hat to one of the forefathers of Jazz violin, Stephane Grappelli, Jason maintains his own distinct voice – especially in his own compositions. Equally gifted as a musician and composer, Jason attracts new listeners to the violin and mandolin. “Tipping Point” is an uplifting and refreshing project deserving of countless repeated listenings” – Regina Carter
