Check out Spectrum Road in action in the following YouTube clips.
Shot live in December 2008 at the Blue Note
Tokyo, this clip shows Bruce, Reid, and Co.
tearing through “Vuelta Abajo”—from the
Tony Williams Lifetime’s second record, Turn
It Over—in beautifully chaotic fashion.
At this intimate February 2011 show at Dimitriou’s
Jazz Alley in Seattle, Spectrum Road
goes from free-form to straight groove and
back again—all while taking turns showcasing
their respective world-class chops.
After a sampling of Jack Bruce’s still gorgeously
haunting vocals on “One Word,” this
clip breaks at the 2:00 mark into a section
where Bruce reflects on the Lifetime and the
honor it was to play with Tony Williams.
