A little big band (sometimes no more than a large group) with variable geometry, the Full Throttle Orchestra has very wide parameters, in order to achieve the "multi-dimensional sonic qualities" intended by its leader, composer and arranger, the contrabassist Adam Lane
Together the Quartet released one cd featuring Lane's compositions (Fo(u)r Being(s), CIMP), toured Europe twice and American once, and won critical praise wherever they performed.
Adam Lane has also developed a challenging solo repertoire, combining amplified and acoustic double bass work with spoken word and sound design.
