Debut album from Toronto native Elie Legrow ‘Playing Chess’ is an 11 track set of covers of Chess tracks featuring special guests Questlove and Captain Kirk Douglas of the Roots, the Dap-Kings horns and more. Betty Wright is one of the producers and the feel is definitely old school with a modern touch. ‘Searching For My Baby’ is a highlight with a definite Daptone feel, the bluesy creeper ‘Going Back Where I Belong’ has a New Orleans funereal quality, her arrangement of ‘Rescue Me’ is daring and different, the sprightly dancer ‘Can’t Shake It’ is a good upbeat number while ‘Sincerely’ is a good bluesoul classic dripping with emotion.
