Spectrum Road: Bruce, Blackman Santana, Reid, Medeski

 

Born from a passion for the music of legendary drummer Tony Williams, Spectrum Road is a collaboration between Jack Bruce, Vernon Reid, John Medeski and Cindy Blackman Santana. Spectrum Road

Although Spectrum Road is named for one of the tracks on the original Tony Williams Lifetime album, it is not a tribute band. After performing alongside Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker in Cream, British bassist Jack Bruce joined the Lifetime for two records, serving as Spectrum Road’s direct connection to their muse. The group is rounded out with guitarist Vernon Reid of Living Colour, multi-keyboardist John Medeski of Medeski, Martin & Wood, and former Lenny Kravitz drummer, Cindy Blackman Santana.

Spectrum Road will release its self-titled debut album June 5 and will kick off its summer tour a tBonnaroo later that week.
