What people are saying:
On his accomplished second CD, “Tipping Point,” Jason's compositional voice is as distinctive as his virtuoso playing.
-The Boston Globe
A rising star in the world of jazz violin and mandolin.
Tipping Point showcases Anick's more contemporary songwriting acumen and the numerous stylistic strands that define his voice. Seamlessly fusing swing, bebop, hard-bop, classical, folk, as well as contemporary influences in his playing, it's a vibrant portrait of a colorful musical personality.
-Allaboutjazz.com (Ian Patterson)
Jason is easily one of the best jazz violinists and mandolinists of his generation. His versatility as a classically trained musician comfortable in folk styles and early to modern jazz - not to mention his abilities as a composer and teacher - all combine to make him a role model for the modern string player.
- Christian Howes
Jason Anick has given us some unique contemporary pieces for jazz mandolin. His playing has a wonderful clarity and creativity and his compositions offer a modern jazz approach to our instrument which is truly refreshing and inspired.
- Mike Marshall
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.

The future of jazz violin is in good hands!
- Joe Craven
Jason Anick has taken his inspiration from the masters of gypsy jazz violin and forged his own exciting personal style. In his first solo project [Sleepless] he showcases the taste, elegance, and flash I have enjoyed seeing develop as a member of my quintet for the last three years. He has rapidly become a force to be reckoned with in the world of jazz violin, as listeners of this project will hear!
- John Jorgenson
Jason Anick's new CD "Sleepless" showcases his command of the Gypsy Jazz style both on violin and mandolin. Combining jazz classics with exciting new compositions, the CD is my current favorite Gypsy Jazz recording.
- Martin Norgaard (Author of "Jazz Fiddle Wizard")
Jason Anick plays as if he were born with a violin in his hands. He is passionate, creative, and plays from the heart.
