CHRIS JASPER was a member and the primary songwriter for the ISLEY BROTHERS from 1973 through 1983 and ISLEY-JASPER-ISLEY from 1984 through 1987. In 1988, Chris Jasper went solo and has since released 15 self-contained, self-produced albums with the same soulful R&B and Funk sound he created for the Isleys.
“Nothing Can Change This Love” … a soulful rendition of the Sam Cooke classic … is the new single from Chris Jasper’s forthcoming album “For The Love Of You”…his 16th solo album!
“Chris interprets the song as a slow dancing love ballad — the kind where you want to hold someone tight on the dance floor.” – Chris Rizik, Soultracks
Chris has just released “a rather special version of Sam Cooke’s ‘Nothing Can Change This Love’ …Wisely Chris doesn’t try to mimic the wonderful original, rather he gives it his very own unique treatment but at the same time manages to retain the simple, soulful beauty of Sam’s version. It’s rather special…” Bill Buckley, Soul and Jazz and Funk
In his soon-to-be released album, “For The Love Of You,” Chris goes back into his catalogue of songs and puts a new spin on some of the biggest hits Chris wrote for the Isley Brothers. The new album also includes soulful arrangements of some R&B and Pop classics, includng Marvin Gaye’s “God Is Love” and Van Morrison’s “Have I Told You Lately.“
“For The Love Of You” is scheduled for a late April release date.
Chris Jasper’s 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.”
Chris demonstrates how he put together some of the most famous Isley Brothers music:
