ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
CHRIS JASPER, was 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 was primarily responsible for writing, arranging and
producing all of The Isley Brothers music during this time. His arrangements and instrumentation as a classically-trained
musician, and his expertise on the keyboards and synthesizers, have been called the foundation of the legendary “Isley
Brothers Sound.” When the six members of the Isley Brothers disbanded (1984), Marvin and Ernie Isley joined Chris and
formed ISLEY-JASPER-ISLEY. Chris 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 brought his “unique
sound” to his own solo projects, again topping the charts with “SuperBad,” a song promoting the value of education. Chris’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 many
ASCAP awards, and the BET lifetime achievement award. In 1992, Chris, 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 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 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. He
also wrote and produced a track for Chaka Khan’s “CK” album (Make It Last) and recently produced and arranged a cover of
“Harvest For The World” for the Average White Band. In 2018, Chris released his 15th self-contained solo album “DANCE
WITH YOU”—a mixture of soulful R&B ballads and uptempo funk—and continues to bring that “Isley Brothers sound” he
created to music lovers everywhere. His latest single, "For The Love Of You"--a song he wrote while he was with the Isley Brothers--is a more mellow version with a new vocal arrangement.
