Cream, Living Colour, Santana Supergroup

(Gibson) Cream's Jack Bruce and Living Colour's Vernon Reid have formed a new band. Spectrum Road is something of a "supergroup," as it features members from Cream, Living Colour, Santana and Medeski, Martin and Wood.

In summer 2012, Spectrum Road will perform at the Bonnaroo festival on June 9. The band's self-titled debut album will be out on June 5 on Palmetto Records.

The group is: Jack Bruce on bass and vocals, Vernon Reid on guitar, John Medeski on keyboards and Cindy Blackman-Santana on drums. "To be able to play and record in this band alongside three of the most creative and stellar musicians in the world is a longtime dream come true," Vernon Reid said in a release. "The idea for Spectrum Road first came about in 2001, and it was the ongoing belief in the kind of record we knew we could make together that made it come to fruition."

The group has played live already as Tony Williams Lifetime Tribute. Bruce spent much of the '70s as a member of Lifetime, Williams's jazz-fusion ensemble, joining after Cream broke up. Williams died in 1997 and in the years following, Bruce discovered a fellow fan in guitarist Reid. Joined by pianist John Medeski and drummer Blackman-Santana, Carlos's wife, they have now recorded a debut album together. more on this story
