CHRIS JASPER needs no introduction to readers of SoulandJazzandFunk. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer made his name with the Isley Brothers and then with splinter group Isley-Jasper-Isley. His sweet voice, melodic songs and cutting keys were integral parts of both combos.

Chris has also enjoyed a successful solo career – and there’s more success on the way with a new album slated for summer release on his family’s Gold City label. The LP is heralded with a just released single called ‘The One’. It’s a dreamy ballad that will recall the very best of the Isley Brothers though Chris puts his own distinct stamp on it.
