Niacin

Having played straightforward hard rock with Mr. Big since the tail end of the '80s, bass virtuoso Billy Sheehan formed Niacin as an outlet for his jazz fusion and prog rock inclinations during the mid-'90s. The trio also featured keyboardist John Novello and drummer Dennis Chambers, both musicians who had crossed frequently between the worlds of jazz and rock during their careers. With Niacin, Novello devoted himself especially to the Hammond B-3 organ, a longtime mainstay of both jazz and prog rock. The band recorded a self-titled debut album in 1996, following it up in 1998 with High Bias. An import-only concert recording, Live!: Blood, Sweat and Beers, surfaced later that year as well. For their next album, Niacin moved from Stretch to Magna Carta, the label that became virtually synonymous with technique-oriented neo-prog rock at the turn of the millennium. Deep was released in 2000 and featured the group's first vocal track, courtesy of special guest Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple), as well as Toto guitarist and session ace Steve Lukather. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

MY GOD!!!!...Ho w do we come up with all these TAGS!!! Jazz fusion, jazz, rock, neo-prog rock??? How come we just can't recognize these guys just flat out COOK. Don't pour no water on them. LET'EM BURN!!!
Fantastic stuff!
I'm hearing some Quatermass in there. Anyone remember those guys?
Impressive! I'm loving it.
Love these guys!
Damn, I was in Rochester, NY 07/28/2012. Wish I would have known about the Talas reunion. When Billy was kicking butt in Talas in the 70's there was another band called Black Sheep led by Louie Grammatico who later went on to lead Foreigner as Lou Gramm. The good ole' days.

Now that's what can rightly be called music!!!
So this coincidental l y comes on days before I'm going to see Billy Sheehan in a reunion of his original band Talas (7/28/2012 @ Hard Rock in Niagara Falls, NY). Wasn't even aware of Niacin before this track played (Clean up Crew). Always loved fusion though :)

This is BOSS!!!
Super-fine! Novello is the master of the crunchy B-3 sound.
dennis chambers is up there way up there
the crunch master generals
I'm always down for DC 24X7 but John Novello does indeed afford his Hammond B-3 no peace, discoverd Niacin years ago on Netscape Spinner internet radio.
Daaaamn, Billy's bass tone on "Clean Up Crew/Do A Little Dirty Work" is sooooo nasty.
If you don't know Niacin, check out the track "Elbow Grease" from Time Crunch. It just blows me away every time!
Can't get enough B3!
