ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
If you are familiar with THE ISLEY BROTHERS, then you know Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, CHRIS JASPER, an integral member of THE ISLEY BROTHERS during the 1970s and 1980s—their gold and platinum years—from the 3+3 (1973) to Between the Sheets (1983) albums. CHRIS JASPER was primarily responsible for writing, arranging and producing all of THE ISLEY BROTHERS music during this time, including such beautiful love songs as “For The Love of You” and “Between the Sheets” and uptempo funk such as “Fight the Power.” His arrangements and instrumentation as a classically-trained musician, and his expertise on the keyboards and synthesizers, are the foundation of the legendary “Isley Brothers Sound.” When the six members of THE ISLEY BROTHERS disbanded (1984), Marvin and Ernie Isley joined CHRIS JASPER and formed ISLEY-JASPER-ISLEY.

CHRIS JASPER brought his “unique sound” and musical talents to ISLEY-JASPER-ISLEY, and topped the charts, writing and singing lead vocals on “Caravan of Love” (1985), which was covered by English recording group, the Housemartins, and became an international #1 pop hit. When ISLEY-JASPER-ISLEY disbanded (1987), CHRIS JASPER again brought his “unique sound” to his own solo projects, again topping the charts with “SuperBad,” a song promoting the value of education.

CHRIS JASPER’s music has been covered and sampled by hundreds of new and established recording artists, including Whitney Houston, Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, Gwen Stefani, Fantasia, Will Smith, Alliyah, Queen Latifah, Notorious B.I.G., Tupac, Natalie Cole, Jaheim, Kendrick Lamar, and the list goes on and on. His music has also been used in many movie and television soundtracks, and TV commercials.

Chris has received numerous gold and platinum albums and music industry awards, including the BET lifetime achievement award. In 1992, CHRIS JASPER, along with the other members of THE ISLEY BROTHERS, was inducted into the ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME and in 2014, received a GRAMMY LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD. In 2015, CHRIS JASPER received the German Record Critics Lifetime Achievement Award ("Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik"). In 2016, Chris was awarded the National R&B Society Lifetime Achievement Award.

CHRIS JASPER has continued to write songs and produce his own R&B and Gospel music, as well as other artists, for his independent record label, Gold City Records.

"Dance With You" is Chris's 15th solo album since his days writing and producing for the Isley Brothers (1973-1983) and Isley-Jasper-Isley (1984-1987). Funk, ballads and midtempo dance tracks along with a special spiritual message in the song called "It's a Miracle"...it's just what you would expect from Chris Jasper. His musical style continues...reminiscent of the music he wrote and produced for the Isley Brothers, Isley-Jasper-Isley and his solo music.
