He moved to Toronto, then Phoenix, then Hawaii for almost 14 years, built a studio there with Walter Becker from Steely Dan, we did the ‘Kamakiriad’ album for Donald Fagen and Walter’s Solo album. Walter bought him out in ’92, and I moved to Phoenix, built a great big studio over there started designing studios.1979 saw a move to Maui, Hawaii, where he retired from touring but not the music business.

Natalie Cole last year - then David Bowie, Glenn Frey, Paul Kantner, Denise Matthews - aka "Vanity" - Prince's protégé, Maurice White all this year...and now Prince. This is not meant to be a comprehensive list. These are the creators of the soundtracks of our lives, and they are ALL gone. This sucks for so many of us, so I just could NOT let this day go by without mentioning, and honoring those musicians we have lost...
But I ALSO have to do my job - which is report, and "pontificate" (no, really) on political news.
Hillary is WAY out front in the polls for most of the next state's primaries. It TRULY IS time for Bernie to leave the race with honor.
As a Hillary Supporter and Pledged State Delegate, I am going to support Hillary on my show, from this point, forward.
So join me - LIVE - Tonight at 11:30 to honor Prince and his contributions to our personal soundtracks, and also to discuss Hillary's lead in the polls.

The Legendary Chris Jasper. Debuts his new single " Share With Me " The Title Track from his upcoming CD. .
Bio from the official Website
CHRIS JASPER’s music has been covered and sampled by hundreds of new and established recording artists, including Whitney Houston, Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, Gwen Stefani, Fantasia, Will Smith, Alliyah, Queen Latifah, Notorious B.I.G., Tupac, Natalie Cole, Jaheim, Kendrick Lamar, and the list goes on and on. His music has also been used in many movie and television soundtracks. In 1992, CHRIS JASPER, along with the other members of THE ISLEY BROTHERS, was inducted into the ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME and in 2014, received a GRAMMY LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD. In 2015, CHRIS JASPER received the German Record Critics Lifetime Achievement Award -
If you are familiar with THE ISLEY BROTHERS, then you have heard the music of CHRIS JASPER, who was primarily responsible for writing, arranging and producing all of THE ISLEY BROTHERS music during this time, including such beautiful love songs as “For The Love of You” and “Between the Sheets” and uptempo funk such as “Fight the Power.” His arrangements and instrumentation as a classically-trained musician, and his expertise on the keyboards and synthesizers, are the foundation of the legendary “Isley Brothers Sound.” When the six members of THE ISLEY BROTHERS disbanded (1984), Marvin and Ernie Isley joined CHRIS JASPER and formed ISLEY-JASPER-ISLEY. Without this crucial musical component, THE ISLEY BROTHERS were no longer a self-produced, self-contained group.
CHRIS JASPER brought his “unique sound” and musical talents to ISLEY-JASPER-ISLEY,
Where would our favorite movies be with out their soundtracks? To this day I can't hear the 20th Century Fox fanfare without thinking it is going to be followed by the Star Wars Theme. But what does it take to watch a movie and then create the music that fits the mood of the scene, the entire plot and the characters. Did you know that Princess Leia has her own theme? Not to mention the Imperial March. It's not just about music that plays under dialogue or sets the mood for Jason Voorhees to spring out from behind a tree.
Tonight we're going to find out about the creative process behind creating movie music with Clandestine composer Jeff Stults.
