'Cornbread'Niacin - Live! In Tokyo (DVD)
{2005 | Eagle Rock Entertainment}

Niacin - Live! In Tokyo (DVD)Niacin, the power trio made up of bassist Billy Sheehan, keyboardist John Novello, and drummer Dennis Chambers - not to be confused with the vitamin B3 under the same name, but easily interchangeable with the Hammond B3 that Novello plays throughout this concert.

Their jazz fusion combines progressive rock and funky instrumentals in a jam filled format recorded from live concert at Tokyo’s Blue Note in 1997 (previously released as Live: Blood, Sweat & Beers). This 57-minute program captures the band live in Tokyo, performing a 10-song set that includes:

1. No Man's Land
2. Do A Little Dirty Work
3. I Miss You (Like I Miss The Sun)
4. One Less Worry
5. Pay Dirt
6. Klaghorn
7. Birdland
8. Niacin
9. You Keep me Hangin' On
10. Three Feet Back

This all instrumental power jam DVD was entertaining. Musically it was too jazzy for my liking, mechanically these guys are masters and incredibly gifted musicians. There was not a lot of flash or any stage antics just three guys playin’ well and having fun. Niacin has recorded four studio albums and one live album since 1996.

Ciao’ for now, peace.
