"Adam Lane - Composer/Bassist

550550

By combining a disparate set of influences into a unique improvisational voice, Adam Lane has become recognized as one of the most original creative voices in contemporary jazz. His 2006 recording New Magical Kingdom, was recently featured in the Penguin Jazz Guide 1001 Best Records Ever Made, and his most recent recording, Ashcan Ranting received a myriad of critical praise including four stars in Downbeat.

550550

His current projects include his Full Throttle Orchestra, a nine piece ensemble formed to realize his extended jazz orchestral compositions, The Adam Lane Trio, featuring legendary reedist Vinny Golia, Four Corners, a co-lead ensemble with reedist Ken Vandermark, and an ongoing solo project that combines unique processed double bass improvisations with Lane's original story telling. As a sideman he has performed with an eclectic mix of musicians, from tenor great John Tchicai, to alto iconoclast Richard Tabnik, to rock legend Tom Waits. Lane's compositions have been praised for their audacity and originality.

550550

Sam Prestiani of Jazziz says of Lane's writing: "His confidence and confrontational prowess as well as his abiding sense of lyricism and heavy-groove power place him in the lineage of forward-jazz adventurism." And Bill Meyer writes in Downbeat, "Lane's music is genuine, accessible, fun. The music is deeply in touch with the essential pleasures of earwig-worthy tunes, fat bluesy grooves, and sheer tonal beauty." (Downbeat Jan 2011)

550550

Lane studied composition at Wesleyan University with Anthony Braxton, and at California Institute of the Arts with Wadada Leo Smith. In 1996 he received a Paternings Scholarship for study at the Darmstadt School for New Music where he studied double bass with Steffano Scodanibbio, and attended master classes in composition with Karlheinz Stockhausen."

"Alto Saxophonist Nick Lyons has been called "one of the most important and original alto saxophonists on the improvisation scene" (Manhattan Users Guide, 2015) and "a young jazzer to watch" (Time Out-NY). His collaborations, based around spontaneously improvised music, have included performing with guitarist Adam Caine, pianists Connie Crothers and Carol Liebowitz. Lyons leads various trios which have included drummers Roger Mancuso and John Wagner and bassists Adam Lane, Hilliard Greene, and Ratzo Harris. Of his 2009 solo performance at The Stone (a pick in Time Out-NY), Mark Weber commented on "his ability to go inside himself and find meaningful lyric inventions, curling out line upon line," adding that the concert was "magnificent."

In 2015 Nick was a featured guest on WKCR's "Out to Lunch," performed in Berlin at clubs A-Trane and B-Flat and appeared on Cheryl Richards's CD "If Not For You" on New Artists Records.

He has been a regular performer in concert series presented by Arts for Art, the NYC fixture which produces the annual Vision Festival.

He has recently performed in groups led by tenor saxophonist Jimmy Halperin (who cited Lyons as one of his favorite young musicians in New York City, JazzTokyo.org), Connie Crothers (The Stone), pianist Harvey Diamond (Boston area), and Aaron Johnson (Dizzy's Club); and he has led groups with pianist Kazzrie Jaxen and bassist Ken Filiano, and pianist Virg Dzurinko, trumpeter Ryan Messina, and drummer Federico Ughi.

Originally from New York City and raised in Northern New Jersey, he has now lived in Brooklyn since 2005.

He was associated with Connie Crothers from 2005-2016 as a student and musical collaborator. They performed

He received a Bachelor's of Music from Oberlin Conservatory where he performed under the direction of Donald Byrd, Marcus Belgrave, Frank Foster, George Lewis, Wendell Logan, and where his teachers included Donald Walden, Gary Bartz, Paul Cohen (saxophone) and Peter Dominguez (double bass)."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"For as long as I've known Adam Caine - which is around 20 years now - I've always been impressed by his openness as an artist and guitarist, the way he never puts himself in any kind of stylistic box. Much like his great 2006 trio record Pipe, Transmissions covers a broad aesthetic range in a way that feels both perfectly natural and appealingly enigmatic. I love the contrast, for example, between the brawny, Tribute to Jack Johnson-esque jamming of "The Core" and the elegance and reserve of tracks like "Night Driver" and "The Girls," which have a spare, poetic quality that reminds me of Jimmy Giuffre's classic late-'50s trios with Jim Hall. There's also fuzzed-out funk ("The Spiral"), beautifully airy swing in a Paul Motian Trio vein ("Cloud Over") and warped long-form abstraction that would make late out-guitar legend Masayuki Takayanagi proud ("Hell Awaits").

What's so impressive is that this excellent band - with Snarky Puppy co-founder Bob Lanzetti also on guitar, eminent avant-jazz bassist Adam Lane, and wizardly drum veteran Billy Mintz, plus the liquid-toned alto saxist Nick Lyons guesting on one track- moves between styles without the slightest bit of fuss. They engage completely with the needs of each piece while retaining a quality of patience and deep listening that runs throughout the record. I have no idea how to sum up Transmissions as a whole, other than to say it's an album of subtle, thoughtful, surprising instrumental music for two guitars, bass and drums. In other words, it's an Adam Caine record through and through."-Hank Shteamer, Dark Forces Swing Blind Punches
