Collide Quartet playing Henry Threadgill in Philadelphia

Exciting news! Collide Quartet will be performing Henry Threadgill's "Background" in Philadelphia on June 13. We are thrilled to be playing this modern master's piece, and to be working again with the Ars Nova Workshop (we had a fantastic experience playing for their Tim Berne composer portrait in December 2009). Ars Nova Workshop is currently presenting a number of concerts featuring AACM composers and performers, including Threadgill, Roscoe Mitchell, and Wadada Leo Smith.

Threadgill has long been one of my favorite players and composers. His creativity is endless, and I say without a shred of exaggeration that Air (Threadgill, Fred Hopkins, and Steve McCall) was one of the all-time greatest groups of the twentieth century. Here's one to listen to: G.v.E.

Also on the bill will be Jeff Parker and Mike Reed, two next-generation AACM exponents.

Details from the Ars Nova Workshop site
