Featuring Otis Clay, Brother John Kattke & Bob Corritore
Join us for a great evening of Chicago blues, soul and R&B as we celebrate the release of Dave Specter's 10th album, Message in Blue on Delmark Records. CD & Vinyl!
Message in Blue is a soulful and compelling blend of 7 original Specter instrumentals along with powerful blues/R&B vocals. Soul legend Otis Clay appears as a special guest on three tracks, including a re-make of his classic “Got To Find A Way,” The Falcons’ “I Found A Love,” and Bobby Bland's “This Time I’m Gone For Good.”
Brother John Kattke is featured on keys (12 tunes) and vocals (3 tunes), while harp ace Bob Corritore guests on 2 Specter originals.
From tough and tone-full Chicago blues guitar to soul-jazz grooves and funky R&B, Message in Blue draws from a wide variety of American roots music.
Also featured on the album are the veteran rhythm section of Harlan Terson and Marty Binder, who've played in the bands of Albert Collins, Buddy Guy, Lonnie Brooks and Otis Rush.
