Elise LeGrow – Playing Chess
“Playing Chess” – The name of Elise LeGrow’s first longplayer is programmatic, as it is a cover album on which the Canadian singer and songwriter dedicates herself to the songs of famous artists who were signed to the legendary Chicago Chess label.
These include Muddy Waters, Etta James, Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry.
LeGrow recorded “Playing Chess” as early as 2016. Steve Greenberg, Michael Mangini and Betty Wright were responsible for the production.
The musicians Questlove (The Roots) and Captain Kirk Douglas (The Roots) as well as The Dap Kings also participated in the album.
The result is a passionate and elegant album, a collection of songs with special classics, to which Elise LeGrow gives a new shine with her unmistakable goose-skin voice: “Playing Chess”.
