    Artist Biography by Steve Leggett
    Bluebird Blues A first-tier blues and jazz guitarist, Dave Specter, whether working solo as a bandleader or as a sideman for artists like Johnny Littlejohn or Son Seals, has always brought intelligence and sharp, crisp playing to the music table, a sort of contemporary version of T-Bone Walker. Born on Chicago's northwest side on May 21, 1963, Specter didn't pick up the guitar until he was 18 years old, but once he did, he never looked back. Early on he worked as a support player for Littlejohn, Seals, and the Legendary Blues Band before starting his own group, the Bluebirds, in 1989. Signing with Delmark Records, he released a debut album, Bluebird Blues, on the imprint in 1991, featuring vocals by Barkin' Bill Smith (Specter is not a vocalist), following it with Blueplicity (this time with vocals from harmonica player Tad Robinson) in 1994 and Live in Europe (again featuring vocalist Robinson) in 1995. Lynwood Slim handled vocals for 1996's Left Turn on Blue (which featured legendary jazz organist Brother Jack McDuff on the Hammond B-3), with Lenny Lynn taking over vocal duties on 1998's Blues Spoken Here. For 2000's Speculatin', Specter abandoned having a singer at all, issuing 13 instrumental tracks. Vocalist or not, Specter's guitar playing can more than carry a song or a gig, or even an album, and respect for his playing had become universal in the blues community, even as he has moved further into jazz territory. Is What Is appeared in 2004, followed by Live in Chicago (a DVD of the same show was also issued) in 2008, all on the Delmark imprint. For 2014's Message in Blue, which featured Otis Clay, Brother John Kattke, and Bob Corritore, Specter mixed guest vocal tracks in with instrumental tracks, all with his signature, swinging guitar style.

    Dave Specter and the Bluebirds. Featuring Sharon Lewis - 3 Songs

    15:47

    Dave Specter has played with virtually all of importance in the Chicago area. He stands out - both the one and the other way and it has been to a dozen CDs until now, such with some of the old legends. Along with band The Bluebirds must be an experience that extends far beyond this evening!

    Blues Diva Sharon Lewis is called the blues process torchbearer of the insightful local blues journalist David Witheis in his book Chicago Blues. And as she says herself: I have lost everything - and have lived through some treacherous times. That she sings about. She sings about life - raw, brutal and unsweetened! But as a bearer of the Chicago tradition so think she also said that Everything is gonna be allright.
