Among the 10 tracks on the new CD include soulful songs such as "STILL IN LOVE", a 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 another beautiful and melodic ballad with rhythms that keep the listener moving. The CD also features a cover of "WHAT'S GOIN' ON", a powerful unique arrangement by Chris of the classic track by one of Jasper's greatest influences, Marvin Gaye.
CHRIS JASPER also brings back the funk he is so well known for including "MAN UP", a powerful funk track with 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.
