A supergroup if ever there was: Guitar renegade Vernon Reid is joining forces with Cream’s Jack Bruce, John Medeski of Medeski, Martin and Wood, and Cindy Blackman Santana of Lenny Kravitz and Santana. The new band, Spectrum Road, will release an album in June make its debut at this summer’s Bonnaroo festival. Billboard summarizes the group’s genesis:
Spectrum Road was formed in homage to jazz drummer Tony Williams, whose track “Spectrum Road” serves as the group’s namesake. Bruce played with the musician in the Tony Williams Lifetime trio in the early ’70s, recording several albums of jazz fusion.
