ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"STILL IN LOVE" by ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME member and recent GRAMMY LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD recipient CHRIS JASPER is another powerhouse, showstopping ballad that begins with the classical piano intro that Chris Jasper is so well known for and drops into a slow R&B groove reminiscent of the beautiful ballads Chris wrote for Isley-Jasper-Isley and The Isley Brothers during their 3+3 gold and platinum era!

"STILL IN LOVE" is the second single from Chris's recent CD Release "THE ONE" that has been met with overwhelmingly positive reviews. Among the 10 songs on CHRIS JASPER's new CD is "BRING IT ON BACK" and that is just what this new music does..."THE ONE" brings the listeners back to the time when "Music was Music," created by musicians on REAL INSTRUMENTS with meaningful lyrics, sweet MELODIES and harmonies on the BALLADS and the FUNK you would expect from "The One" who crafted such Isley Funk classics as "Fight The Power," "Live It Up," "The Heat is On," "The Pride" and beautiful ballads such as "For The Love of You," "Caravan of Love," "Insatiable Woman," and the list goes on and on.

The title track, "THE ONE", is a sweet ballad featuring Jasper's classic keyboards and soulful lead vocals delivering a beautiful message of love. "THE ONE" is a lush, melodic, romantic ballad that has been called the "perfect wedding song."
"KISS ME" is a beautiful and melodic ballad with rhythms that keep the listener moving; and YOUR LOVE is classic R&B at its best!

CHRIS JASPER also brings back the FUNK he is so well known for, including "MAN UP", a powerful funk track with a soaring solo and lyrics encouraging the listener to be the best they can be; "BRING IT ON BACK", with its strong R&B & Funk groove is a call to action to "bring back" that great R&B and soul music we all enjoy; and "ROCK THE FOUNDATION", a heavy funk track is sure to shake things up.

"RIGHT NOW" is a moving midtempo track that pleads for the solution to everyday problems..."We need You...Right Now." And "PEACEFUL AGAIN" is an uplifting ANTHEM proclaiming a time when Peace and Happiness finally return, a song that could easily find its home in a movie soundtrack.

Another highlight on "THE ONE" includes Chris's tribute to one of his greatest influences, the late great MARVIN GAYE, with Chris's powerful unique arrangement of the classic track "WHAT'S GOING ON".

HERE ARE EXCERPTS FROM SOME OF THE 5-STAR REVIEWS "THE ONE" CD HAS BEEN RECEIVING:

This is a most masterful and powerful comeback of the Soulful Funk and R&B era since the original Isley Brothers only Chris Jasper could have composed!! Catch it...it's one of a kind!!!" ... Ron Laus, Host at Hear it Now Live Radio and Director at Entertainment Enclosed Magazine

"God bless you Chris Jasper. I'm loving this album. Finally, somebody has the decency to express themselves musically in a manner that all can listen to and enjoy. I can't tell you how tired I am of hearing the blatantly over-sexually explicit lyrics that permeate the airways nowadays. We need you, your lyrics and your music more than ever. Let's ride! I'm with you." ... Bob Thomas, Air Personality, WVKL 95.7 FM, Norfolk, VA.

"Best known worldwide for his prominent keyboard, songwriting and producing work as an integral member of The Isley Brothers during their 1973-to-1983 “Gold-and-Platinum years” (in addition to his later role as one-third of spin-off trio Isley-Jasper-Isley), multi-award-winning singer/composer/multi-instrumentalist Chris Jasper this month delivers his eleventh new solo album “The One”, pioneered by the sensually-swaying groove of its hypnotically-undulating title-track single." BLUES & SOUL MAGAZINE

"I can hear Mr. Jasper's funkiness and keyboard skills coming throughout this piece and it brings me back to the day when he was still part of the 3 + 3 Isley Brothers Line up" ... Marcus D. Anthony, Texas on Amazon Reviews

"A must buy...Had to buy the whole Mp3" ... Keith D. on Amazon Reviews

"Awesome!...I have to say I absolutely love this CD. Listening to this CD is easy to see that Mr Jasper was the driving force behind all the Isley Brothers albums from 3+3 all the way to Between The Sheets in which I own every one of them. The One is a fantastic track with that old soulful sound and is currently the ring tone on my phone, Still In Love reminds me of those old school slow grooving on the dance floor..." J. Davis on Amazon Reviews

"A Truly Great Album ... Let me say that listening to "The One" is like stepping into a time machine that takes you to a place way back when artists made music because they loved it! So unlike today. This album is truly a masterpiece. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee and Lifetime Honoree, Chris Jasper truly poured his heart and soul into each and every song. Immediately upon listening, you will recognize that Isley Brothers sound that of course started with their train of hits on the second generation, 3 + 3 album (1972). Simply put, Chris was and is the Isley sound that is so recognizable to their millions of fans. Those who will say "If you've heard one Isley Brothers record, you've heard them all," certainly haven't discovered the creative parameters of Chris Jasper. Not only does he deliver that classic sound that we are all familiar with, but he takes it to another level. First of all, he wrote all of the songs and lyrics, as well as played all of the instruments and recorded and mixed it all in his home studio. What impressed me instantly when I listened, was how he incorporated the vocal sounds of Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye and Ronald Isley into the songs. I'm not going to tell you which songs, but you'll get a chill when you listen to the album and hear them. Chris has an impeccable voice and both his lead and background vocals on this album are exemplary! Every song is a hit, so it's hard to pick and choose between them, but I will just say that my favorites are, 'Man Up' (reminiscent of the Isley Brothers hit 'The Pride'..The guitar solo is incredible!! Was that Ernie Isley playing? No, Chris Jasper!)...'The One' (chord structure and progression and vocals are priceless)...'Still In Love' (Wow!...again, you will see that Chris was and is the Isley sound. Period!)...'Your Love' (an awesome love song). It's obvious by listening to this album that Chris is so very in love with his wife, Queen and inspiration, Margie Jasper! Lastly, 'Peaceful Again' is a beautiful song that gives us all hope in this world of evil, confusion and corruption. The same message that he gave in his 1985 #1 Hit 'Caravan of Love!' Listen, "The One" is truly a great album and it should be currently played on every major radio station in the country. Let's all make this happen! Let's do better than that by alerting the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (Grammy's) of its existence. This album needs to be recognized and honored for the great work that it is! Please buy this album, listen to it intently, and tell everyone you know just how good it is! I'm truly honored to write this review!" Eferem Hurdle - Music Critic/Historian - Knightdale, NC on Amazon Reviews

"Do you remember those wonderful 3 plus 3 Isley Brothers years? Well, this album 'Brings It All Back' thanks to multi-talented, multi-tasker Chris Jasper. A number of tracks could neatly fit into the Isley's innovative Part 1/Part 2 format from those marvellous golden years. A sign of quality, the best track comes in at number 8 !! Title track is delicious, Track 2 up there with 'For The Love of You' As for numbers 3 and 4 ...I can almost imagine Rudi and Kelly harmonising, Ernie and Marvin jammin at the back, but Christopher H. Jasper does it all! Jasper has 'done the math' He has proved that 3 plus 3 equals 'The One'" ... Alan Carson on Amazon Reviews

""The One" Doesn't Just Raise the Roof, it Rocks the Foundation!...Chris Jasper is a complete, well-rounded musician. His latest effort, "The One" further demonstrates his mastery of multiple instruments and high level vocal abilities. Mr. Jasper artfully weaves his way through ballads and up-tempo songs. The beautiful thing about "The One" is that it is not limited by genre labels, there is something for everyone. The socially conscious "Right Now", "Peaceful Again", and "Man Up" are impactful without being too preachy. The love songs are beautifully written and performed. "Your Love" is a personal favorite of mine. Its drum, synthesizer, and vocal work are both first class and high-class.

Chris Jasper breaks the laws of physics in "Bring It On Back", proving you can move forward by going backwards. Chris' heartfelt plea to bring back the iconic music of years past is much more than a walk down memory lane. Years from now listeners will want to bring it on back to "Bring It On Back". "Rock the Foundation" is as funky as can be, culminating in a screeching guitar solo. Yes, he can play guitar also. Before listening to this song you should talk with your structural engineer, Chris delivers on his promise to bring the house down.

The overall impression I got after listening to this terrific album is that Chris is one of the good guys. All of the songs are incredibly genuine and you get a real feel for what type of person he is. I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have a signed copy of the "The One". It's unfortunate that it hasn't received the airtime or publicity commensurate with the quality of the album. I will do everything I can to make sure people appreciate this great album and artist, starting with this review." ... Matt T. on Amazon Reviews

"Chris Jasper's Greatest Contribution !!! ... This very latest output entitled "THE ONE" by MR CHRIS JASPER, formerly of THE ISLEY BROTHERS is indeed one of his best if not his very best effort, this record is perhaps CHRIS JASPER'S GREATEST CONTRIBUTION TO THE WORLD OF MUSIC !!. Like fine exquisite wine, CHRIS JASPER'S talent seems to improve with age....this particular record is a genuine masterpiece.

The overall feel is most definitely ISLEY, crammed with the magic sound of the 70s and 80s, CHRIS has indeed "BRING IT ON BACK"!. Weighing ten songs total, CHRIS has given us a solid dose of sweet, mellow R&B on this set...only two GOSPEL cuts is present here...the songs are dedicated to his dear WIFE, MARGIE....she's supposed to be one of the happiest ladies in all the world!

ONCE more almost all the songs are written, arranged, proformed and produced by MR JASPER...he is truly gifted, a master talent indeed...

This special album launches with the title track "THE ONE", such a sweet heavy ballad. Next is the floating, gentle "STILL IN LOVE", is as good as it gets. now things get muscular with the cool funk "ROCK THE FOUNDATION", another excellent art-form. Perhaps my most Favorited song here is classic sounding "BRING IT ON BACK", pleading to keep the R&B fire burning, love the keyboarding...it is as if this is an ISLEY BROTHERS album with CHRIS on lead vocals..amazing.. "YOUR LOVE" and "KISS ME", are both supreme expressions, worthy of air play. "MAN UP" is a positive message delivered in maddening funk...be the best you can be...outstanding. "RIGHT NOW" is a busy gospel song with a strong message...begging for the return of the MESSIAH..stunning vocal and instrumental setup. Here, CHRIS takes MR MARVIN GAYE'S "WHAT'S GOING ON" and makes it his very own...a solid tribute to a legend...again excellent!.. Finishing this compact effort is the lively, choir-laced "PEACE AGAIN"...a vision of the ETERNAL UTOPIA..

Very highly recommended to all ISLEY BROTHERS, ISLEY JASPER ISLEY, CHRIS JASPER fans and fans of fantastic music in general, satisfaction is certainly guaranteed, many artists are trying to but CHRIS JASPER has indeed BRING IT ON BACK!!!" ... Ian Moodie "Mr. Celestial", Miami FL on Amazon Reviews

"The One has a marvelous sound that’s a little bit of the old and a little bit of the new. A pop feel by and large, there’s guitar harmony early on. Then, there’s a choir singing gospel style on Peaceful again, stylish keyboard parts, firm basslines and processed guitar on Right now. Chris Jasper has got the mix just right! Enjoyed this thoroughly." ... Ricky Kej on Amazon Reviews
