Playing Chess


I kinda like a couple of the songs. Good job.



This album is absolutely mind blowing! I know some of the original versions of these songs, but every one of Elise's interperations are completely original and stand on their own. Great vocals thorughout and and what an amazing band. Bravo!

About Elise LeGrow

With a rich, textured vocal tone in the tradition of both R&B and jazz à la Amy Winehouse, Elise LeGrow is a Canadian singer and songwriter based in Toronto. After several years developing a fan base with club and festival appearances as she maneuvered her way from pop to retro-soul, her debut single, "No Good Woman," became a fan favorite on CBC Radio 2 in 2012. The song appeared on her self-titled debut EP later that year. She eventually drew the attention of S-Curve Records, and label founder Steve Greenberg co-produced material for first full-length alongside Betty Wright and Michael Mangini. The three of them had previously collaborated on Joss Stone's The Soul Sessions. Led by a version of Chuck Berry's "You Never Can Tell," her debut album was a collection of Chess Records covers titled Playing Chess. With contributors including but not limited to Questlove and the Dap-Kings, it was released on S-Curve and Savoy Jazz in 2018. ~ Marcy Donelson
