Various Artists Marc Mac: How About a Game of Chess?
- Words: Fred Miketa
- Label: ABB Soul
From the depths of a Chess Record drought comes How About A Game of Chess?, a record that has the soulful energy of the greats with just enough street flare to keep hip-hop heads happy. The double LP features tracks with a plentitude of samples from the likes of Ramsey Lewis, Rotary Connection, Howlin‘ Wolf, Dorothy Ashby, Shirley Scott, and Ahmad Jamal. Think jazzed-out horns, sporadic drumbeats, and some lazy days. If you‘ve got love for the Visioneers or sleepy time soul, this is your jam.
