Who Do You Love



Leonard Chess changed the face of modern music, and he did so without playing a note. An immigrant living in Chicago just as the city was exploding with new blues sounds, he heard what few others did at the time: the universal passion in the music. Etta James, Muddy Waters and Bo Diddley all rose to fame thanks to Chess.

At first with a nightclub and then with his legendary record label, Chess earned his place in American cultural history. This is his story, and it rocks.

Jon Abrahams, Brett Beoubay, Rus Blackwell, Marcus Lyle Brown, Chris Burnett

Directed by Jerry Zaks
