The spirit of Gypsy Jazz is alive and well in the hands of this foursome. The Rhythm Future Quartet pays homage to Django Reinhardt with their ensemble name and musical style. Listen for standards, originals and covers all done in the style of Gypsy Jazz. 

Lori’s love for public broadcasting runs deep. She was raised on Car Talk, Morning Edition, Adventures in Good Music with Karl Haas, and later while studying wildlife biology at Bethel College in North Newton, Kansas, she realized that if she helped answer phones during the fund drive at KMUW, she could meet and chat with the hosts of locally produced shows.
