Chris Jasper – “For The Love Of You”
#Growns earlier this year through our “Cover Me Sundays” series we featured the work on the great Chris Jasper and his cover of the Sam Cooke classic “Nothing Can Change This Love”. Today being Mr. Jasper’s birthday we thought it nothing less than apropos to post his timeless classic written during his tenure with the legendary Isley Brothers – “For The Love Of You”. This soothing re-imagining of a classic from the composer himself is the calm we need to listen to in the 2020 storm.
For The Love Of You is Chris Jasper’s 16th solo album since 1988. Having listened to the entire set, For The Love Of You is tailor made for the listener who appreciates the craftsmanship of a great song and the subtlety and nuance of masterful arrangements. Mr. Jasper goes back to the catalogue of songs he wrote for the Isleys to put a new spin on some of the group’s biggest hits during this gold and platinum period, including “I Once Had Your Love,” “Go For What You Know,” and the title track “For the Love of You.” as well as some other R&B and Pop evergreens.
