Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Featuring one of today's hottest power trios, this double-CD live set chronicles the 1997 Rock Across America Tour of over 140 cities. The set features over 100 minutes of hard driving, straight-forward instrumental rock music delivered with a funk-tinged groove and infused with progressive jazz sensibilities. Snap, Crackle & Pop...Live! includes three tracks from Rock's scorching debut, Out of Body, three tracks from Zaza's critically acclaimed Sing, a blistering version of Aerosmith's "Walk This Way", plus extended solos from all three musicians.

From the Label

"Super chops, super players, two CDs worth of live, in-your-face instrumental power rock fusion. Bobby, Neil and Bill take no prisoners as they blast through two killer sets of mostly original material...(musicians) interested in serious rock should not miss this one." (Fuse Magazine, Issue 4, (January)1999.)

"Hard-rockin' fusion doesn't get any tastier than this. These fifteen tracks have just the right balance of structure, melody and virtuosic showmanship to keep you enthralled from start to finish. Recommended."

He became one of my favorite drummers on the very first listen.
Ross Reynolds
Despite his unfathomable virtuosity, his playing within the context of the songs is very tasteful and understated.
Lord Chimp
He plays faster than most guitar players, and has incredible jazz knowledge.

Live instrumental rock at its absolute best. Where to begin showering praise upon this gem...
Neil Zaza combines the melodic instinct of Satriani with advanced technical mastery and intensity. Showing diversity in his compositional side is the album's intro, which sounds like an sparkling electric sitar. His shredding is furious and creative (see his guitar solo), but another side is revealed with a sensitive rendition of "Amazing Grace", with guitar tones to die for. His song "I'm Alright" is ultra-melodic featuring hooks to rival the best of Satriani. Another Zaza track, "Hailin'", breaks down into jaw-dropping solo spots for Zaza and Dickens before making a reprise.
Bill Dickens' ranks up there with the finest bass players I've ever heard, in many ways. Despite his unfathomable virtuosity, his playing within the context of the songs is very tasteful and understated. His note choice and timing complements each song perfectly, and even his mind-blowing speed is just a means to an end. Then his bass solo comes along....and it's simply disgusting -- I still don't comprehend how it is humanly possible to play the bass like this (no, really). Even the incredible Victor Wooten is in awe of the Buddha -- that's saying something, I think.
Bobby Rock is easily the _grooviest_ rock drummer I have ever heard after Nick D'Virgilio. His jazz knowledge creeps into play at times during his interplay with the Buddha. On disc 1, 19-minute drum solo "Quadzilla" is probably the single most impressive thing I have heard on a drum kit. His four bass drum, four high-hat setup allows for incredible ambidexterity and there is so much musicality and groove to his playing. Wild single-stroke snare rolls, double-stroke bass drum rolls, 32nd note furies, tribal beats, Latin percussion pieces...

Many albums claim to showcase musicianship, but this one does it with style, taste, and flair. Take Michael Jordan copy him two times and make a three man Jordan team and it would be undefeatable. Bobby Rock, Neil Zaza, and Bill Dickens do just that with this instrumental rock album. Undefeatable!!! No other musicians have ever come close to this mammoth, marathon recording. Check it out! Don't leave amazon without it!

He plays faster than most guitar players, and has incredible jazz knowledge. Rarely do you come across someone this fast with such good understanding of what he's playing.

I've been a guitar fan for a long time and never have I ever seen anyone as melodic as Zaza. His compositional skills are amazing (check out i'm alright and the intro) and his technical wizardry is truly astonishing. I'm alright is still my favorite guitar song EVER, over anything of malmsteen, moore, impelliteri, gilbert, etc! becker is a close second when it comes to composition. If you like Satriani's melodicism and george bellas' techincal wizardry, this is for you!

If you like Buckethead fast picking, George Lynch tone, Paul Gilbert clean arpeggios and Greg Howe SHREDDING hammer-ons this double CD is for you! All tracks are interesting, specially Aerosmith's "Walk this way" and "I'm allright". I also recommend his prevous releases SING and TWO HANDS, ONE HEART!
