Album number three from Red Hot Chili Peppers' drummer Chad Smith's jazz side project is probably too early for Smith to go the double-disc live route. That's because nearly all of the tunes are included in his band's two studio sets. Considering the live presentation and the group's predilection for '70-styled electric jazz-rock, these performances feature particularly tasty and remarkably restrained playing, even with their longer lengths. Some of the ballads, like the bluesy "Shilo's Forbidden City Blues" and the comparatively delicate "Nightsweats," display the four members' chops and assured sense of dynamics. It's that cohesive interaction that separates these players from similarly oriented outfits who play fast and furious, as if they are paid by the note.
