     Dave Specter and Otis Clay partner up for SPACE show
    What happens when an ace Chicago blues guitarist meets up with a scorching Chicago soul singer? Fire meets fire. You can hear it on the key tracks of Dave Specter's deeply satisfying, jazz-tinged new album, "Message in Blue" (on Chicago's Delmark...
