2000 Niacin – Deep

Niacin is a neo-fusion instrumental trio featuring bassist Billy Sheehan, drummer Dennis Chambers, and keyboardist John Novello. Founded in 1996, the band’s name comes from the timbral foundation of the Hammond B3 organ; vitamin B3 is also known as niacin.

While the members pursue solo and sideman projects, they have continued to record and tour as a unit.

Deep is the third studio album from the jazz rock fusion trio Niacin, released in March 2000.

The album is heavily loaded with Billy Sheehan’s powerful bass solos and features contributions from guest musicians Glenn Hughes on vocals and Steve Lukather on guitar.
