PRLog - Oct. 3, 2014 - NEW YORK -- "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 Life Radio and Director at Entertainment Enclose Magazine
"God bless you Chris Jasper. I'm loving this album. Finally, somebody has the decency to express themseles 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.
BLUES & SOUL MAGAZINE recently featured CHRIS JASPER in an article entitled "THE ISLEY EFFECT" which begins: "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." http://www.bluesandsoul.com/feature/913/chris_jasper_the_isley_effect/
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 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." http://youtu.be/flNtSbJ3fpw
"STILL IN LOVE" is another powerhouse, showstopping ballad that begins with the classical keyboard intro that Jasper is so well known for and drops into a slow R&B groove that pulls you in and keeps you wanting more; "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"... about which Marvin's wife, JANIS GAYE, commented:
"Chris, this is fantastic! I love it and I am a tough critic when it comes to Marvin and especially 'What's Going On'...you do it justice." ... Janis Gaye
