Spectrum Road is a groundbreaking collaboration between four giants of modern music:
Jack Bruce, Vernon Reid, John Medeski and Cindy Blackman Santana.
Spectrum Road is named for one of the incendiary tracks on the original Tony Williams Lifetime album, but as these
four musicians demonstrate on their debut recording, this isn’t a tribute band. After making rock history with Eric
Clapton and Ginger Baker in Cream, legendary British bassist Jack Bruce joined the Lifetime for two records thus
serving as Spectrum Road’s direct connection to their muse. The group is artfully rounded out with famed guitarist
Vernon Reid, of Living Colour, and multi-keyboardist John Medeski, one-third of the juggernaut Medeski,
Martin & Wood. Made famous by her ten plus years backing Lenny Kravitz, Cindy Blackman Santana has
distinguished herself as an impressively versatile player who’s as comfortable on post-bop sessions with Joe
Henderson and Wallace Roney as she is touring with pop stars like Kravitz and husband Carlos Santana. The
formidable lineup of Spectrum Road assures the legacy of Tony Williams lives on, and clearly qualifies as a major
2012 music event.
