Esther Interviews Chris Jasper from Isley-Jasper-Isley

I had the pleasure of interviewing Chris recently.  Again another legend sharing his life, his love, his passion.  Chris also spoke about his latest two remixes from his current album "Share With Me" which have both done well in the UK. "That's What Love Can Do" is the most recent single and "I Love You" was the previous single.  Always inspired, always empowered to be talking to such legends.  As I peeled back the years during this interview I felt a sense of nostalgia take over remembering some of my favorites from the Isley Brothers and then I listened to Chris' new tracks and I could feel myself slipping and sliding into that wonderful place of delirium where delicious music ruled and once again I thought Yes Chris had done it.

That's What Love Can Do
I Love You
Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, CHRIS JASPER, was an integral member of THE ISLEY BROTHERS during the 1970s and 1980s.  Their gold and platinum years were from the 3+3 (1973) to Between the Sheets (1983) albums.  These were the years when THE ISLEY BROTHERS were a self-produced, self-contained group.
 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.
