Choice Cut: Chris Jasper reimagines his Isley Brothers classic

(October 7, 2019) What more can we say about the legendary Chris Jasper? As the keyboardist and principal songwriter for The Isley Brothers during their Imperial Period, Chris helped fashion a unique funky soul sound for the group, and created a trove of great songs that continue to be staples of radio years after their initial release.

Chris is now working on his next album, due in early 2020, which will feature entirely new takes on his incredible catalog of hits, as well as his personalization of other classic cuts. We simply can't wait.

In the meantime, we have an advance treat: One of our favorite Isley Brothers songs ever was the iconic love ballad, "For The Love of You." It has been a Quiet Storm favorite for more than four decades, and it still moves us in the same way it did back then. Chris has now taken his composition and given it a fresh look through his brand new recording. This is a slow dancing gem, perhaps smoothed out even more than the original version.

We think SoulTrackers are going to dig this one, especially late at night with a loved one. So we've chosen it as our latest Choice Cut! Check it out below, and welcome the great Chris Jasper back to SoulTracks.
