Anthony Tidd’s Quite Sane
September 22, 2022 8:00pm
Grammy-winning bassist and composer Anthony Tidd premieres a new body of work commissioned by Chamber Music America, in a performance at Philadelphia’s Painted Bride Art Center on Thursday, September 22, 2022.
Recently appointed Chief Creative Catalyst for Ars Nova Workshop, Tidd celebrates the 20th anniversary of The Child of Troubled Times: Short Stories, the critically acclaimed debut album by his Quite Sane octet, and makes his long overdue return to the groundbreaking ensemble with this performance.
Born, raised, and educated in London, the child of Trinidadian immigrants, Anthony Tidd has distinguished himself as a true leader in Philadelphia’s creative music scene for more than two decades. As an international touring bassist, he has worked with Steve Coleman, Greg Osby, Ravi Coltrane, Vijay Iyer, Talib Kweli, Rudresh Mahanthappa, Meshell Ndegeocello, Common, Jill Scott, De La Soul, David Byrne, Frank Ocean, and many others. He has also recorded and produced a number of releases for multi-platinum recording artists such as The Roots, Macy Gray, Lady Gaga, The Black Eyed Peas, Fergie, Pink, Ursula Rucker, etc.
At the time of its release JazzTimes hailed Quite Sane’s The Child of Troubled Times: Short Stories, Tidd’s 2002 debut release with the ensemble, as a “sublime mélange of rap, jazz and R&B [that] sounds like the combined brainchild of M-BASE, experimental R&Bers the Soulquarians… and British broken-beat producers I.G. Culture.”
