The Taylor O’Donnell Group~ A Night of Unsung Heroes & Forgotten Treasures

Highlights of Taylor's performing career have been an appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show working with producer David Foster, performing at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center in NYC with renowned vocal groups GoldCompany and VoicesIowa, working as a studio singer in Miami with Grammy award winning producer Rudy Perez, singing the National Anthem for the NFL Miami Dolphins' home games from 2010-2011, and singing background vocals for singer-songwriter Ben Folds.

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.

Jason Anick and Olli Soikkeli, the front-men 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 prestigious Wall Street Journal proclaimed, "Olli Soikkeli, is 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 College of Music Instructor, received critical praise from the world-renowned Boston Globe which stated, "Jason's compositional voice is as distinctive as his virtuoso playing."

For their debut self-titled album, the Rhythm Future Quartet decided to re-visit and record classic jazz and Gypsy jazz favorites. Through their intricate and creative arrangements, they have brought new life to songs like "Night and Day" and "Summertime." Coupled with musical sensitivity and virtuosity, the Rhythm Future Quartet's debut album acts as an enticing example of the future of Gypsy jazz music.
