"I currently live in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I grew up in Long Beach CA. Mother was an artist, father a labor organizer.

On heavy rotation at home as a youngster was Dave Brubeck, Ramsey Lewis, Paul Desmond, the Beatles and Rolling stones..

As a teenager I was listening to alot of speed metal, punk rock, heavy metal and jazz.

I decided to dedicate my life to music after hearing John Coltrane. I hoped to one day give others the feeling I felt when hearing his music, perhaps an impossible goal, but a journey worth making as far as I can tell.

I earned a BA in music at Cal State Long Beach with an emphasis on classical saxophone performance where I had the pleasure of studying with Leo Potts, John Prince and many other great musicians.

I then earned an MFA at California Institute of the Arts in Jazz performance where I studied with many masters including Wadada Leo Smith, Paul Novros, Larry Koonse, Joe Labarbera, Charlie Haden and Pedro Eustache. At Cal Arts I also had the fortune to study music from Bali, Java, Ghana, and India. I have more recently studied and performed Japanese Gagaku music as well.

Since graduating from Cal Arts, I have had the pleasure of making music with a wide variety of amazing musicians including Wadada Leo Smith, Peter Kowald, John Butcher, Donald Robinson, Marco Eneidi, Weasel Walter, Adam Lane, Aphrodesia, Lagos-Roots, Mykal Rose, The Rova Saxophone Quartet, William Hooker and many others. I lead my own groups Go-Go-Fightmaster, electro-magnetic trans-personal orchestra and I currently perform in the Oakland Active Orchestra , Lisa Mezzacappa's Bait & Switch, Vijay Anderson Quartet, Guerilla Hi-Fi Black Water Gold, and Touch and Go Sextet I have been very fortunate to have performed in many great clubs and festivals across the U.S. and abroad including recent appearances at the Monterey Jazz Festival and the Novarra Jazz Festival in Italy. I have composed for large ensembles, chamber groups, plays, films, dance performances, wind quintet, saxophone quartets and trios as well as pieces for solo instruments."

descriptions, reviews, &c.
"Adam Lane is doing some magic. If you didn't noticed, here's a new opportunity you shouldn't miss. And why? Because the bassist, composer and arranger is taking the big band format in jazz (in this case a septet) some steps beyond. You know there's not much happening nowadays in this field. Even the best examples of good orchestral work follow the same old patterns, without adding anything really new to what was done before. The Full Throttle Orchestra is an exception. Lane has Duke Ellington and Charles Mingus as references for his work, but not to reproduce their ideas, solutions and techniques, as many others simply do. For him, the large ensemble musics of the two masters are seeds for a different crop in what concerns creativity, giving a future to a music genre that almost can't move with the weight of its past.That's his magic and its not a common feature. The fact that we can find some ingredients of classical contemporary music and of rock in the pieces he composes and conducts aren't sufficient explanations for the difference - that's only for flavor, fullfiling the nature of jazz to include in its corpus all the sounds crossing its way. "New Magical Kingdom" is an efective demonstration of something else: a change in attitude. Without making a fuss about it, Adam Lane is reinventing the format, and he does it with a very special and fruitful competence."-Clean Feed
