Editorial Reviews


Niacin are able to out jam just about anyone when it comes to a Jazz-Rock-Fusion performance. -- Classic Rock Revisited, Ron Bozich, May 2003

a glimpse into the soul of music, maybe the live album you’ve been waiting for. --, Jedd Beaudoin, June 2003

Product Description

The three members of Niacin each have high profile reputations. Bassist Billy Sheehan worked with Mr. Big, Talas, & David Lee Roth. Keyboardist John Novello worked with Chick Corea & Andy Summers, & drummer Dennis Chambers worked with Santana, George Clinton, & Stanley Clarke. As Niacin, they write songs that allow them to show off their musical gifts & powerful, soulful style. The sum of the parts makes the band a unique & identifiable force. The album features 2 unreleased studio tracks 'Front & Center' & 'Gelatin'. Magna Carta. 2003.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome cd! Dramatic and drive filled. April 7, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Some jazz listeners try to lash out on jazz they are not familiar with by saying that it lacks soul. Fortunately as a long time jazz listener I can tell you that "SOUL" is carried to the listener in the drive of the music.Not all jazz has its soul in the same place.It truly depends on the listener. Niacin has that drive that the majority of mainstream-radio-standard-blow-the-saxaphone-all-day-jazz lacks.That type of jazz is also known as Wal-Mart jazz.Niacin is powerful jazz. Powerful jazz makes you wanna create, makes the artistic senses awaken to salute to that drive.That is why rapid fire yet graceful solos earn jazz musicians so much prestige.The way that they play their instrument of choice as if their life depended on it, revealing their oneness with that sacred instrument,their "soul".That is exactly what the band members in Niacin does:each reveals their soul through the desired instrument. The drive is that energy that they offer to you, the listener through their playing. To me and other niacin song owners,the drive in this music is the soul. If you want music that will motivate you through powerful creative rhythms then this is your cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars great interaction May 2, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
these guys feed off of each others musical energy-----all three are at their best here--no need to ramble about technical ability--everyone already knows about these guys--it's the groove and feel that makes this a daily listen for me.

1.0 out of 5 stars ain't jazz March 6, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Recently, I was checking into information about Dennis Chambers and I came across some online video clips of his 3-piece band, Niacin. The short pieces of their work were completely engaging, funky, highly skilled clips of what appeared to be jazz. Taking a drummer, a bass player and a keyboard player in many instances, means jazz. Selling a CD in the jazz section of a record store normally means jazz.
When I picked this one up, I was profoundly disappointed with what I found. There's no depth to this music whatsoever. The recording of Dennis Chambers' drums leaves a LOT to be desired. He's a punchy, dynamic, WILD drummer with practically obscene skills and at the same time, his sound really needs to be brought out front to be heard. This live recording sticks him in the background, obscuring the very thing that makes him one of the best in the business. Billy Sheehan likewise was a great bass player back in the days of the bands he's known for. He's still a great bass player technically speaking, but that's just it, it's all technical. If you were playing rock music back in the 80's, remember the whole rock&back thing? Bringing up bizarre modal scales and playing music written more from the desire to be obscure and technically impresive rather than injecting any *real* feeling or soul? Well..he's still doing that. It's like listening to a mathemetician play the bass guitar. He *is* good in a purely technical way, but again, there's no depth. John Where did THIS guy come from? How could Chick Corea stand being in the same room with this guy? The Hammond B3 organ is far too fine an instrument to be held in captivity by someone who can't take it farther than this.
