Spectrum Road

A sensational jazz-fusion supergroup, Spectrum Road features Jack Bruce (Cream) bass, Vernon Reid (Living Color) guitar, keyboardist John Medeski (Medeski, Martin, and Wood), and Tony Williams protégé Cindy Blackman-Santana (Lenny Kravitz, Santana), channeling Tony on the drums. Originally conceived as a tribute band to the late great jazz drummer Tony Williams’ Lifetime project, Spectrum Road has evolved into a cohesive group incorporating original tunes into their fiery reworking of pieces from the famed fusion group. The ridiculously talented musicians who make up this group are now guided more by using the musical spirit of Tony Williams as a starting point for new explorations in sound.
