Overview

Written and directed by Darnell Martin, Cadillac Records chronicles the rise of Chess Records and its recording artists. The film stars Adrien Brody as Leonard Chess, Jeffrey Wright as Muddy Waters, Columbus Short as Little Walter, Mos Def as Chuck Berry, and Beyoncé Knowles as Etta James. Rounding out the cast are Gabrielle Union, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Cedric the Entertainer, Eamonn Walker and Tammy Blanchard. In this tale of sex, violence, race and rock and roll in 1950's Chicago, Cadillac Records follows the exciting but turbulent lives of some of America's musical legends, including Muddy Waters, Leonard Chess, Little Walter, Howlin’ Wolf, Chuck Berry and Etta James. The Cadillac Records soundtrack (Music World/Columbia) features performances by Beyoncé, Mos Def, Buddy Guy, Raphael Saadiq, Solange, Q-Tip and others, recording classics such as "At Last" and "Hoochie Coochie Man," as well as new tracks by Beyoncé.

Editorial Reviews

Billboard - Jeff Vrabel
The songs are performed in "Walk the Line" fashion by the actors: Mos Def does Chuck Berry ("No Particular Place to Go"), actor Jeffrey Wright channels Muddy Waters ("I'm a Man"), and, most notably, Beyoncé leaves Sasha Fierce at the club door for a reverent turn as Etta James ("At Last," "I'd Rather Go Blind").
