ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This Collection includes all the hits of Arnold Jarvis from past to present.

A discography of slamming, unforgettable dance classics that have topped dance charts worldwide and premiered Arnold Jarvis as one of House music's legendary male vocalist.

His road to success began at the age of sixteen when he sang with a local Gospel Choir in Baltimore.

His rich, soulful-inflected baritone and unique phrasing has made him one dance music most favored male vocalist.

While an undergraduate at New York University, Arnold began auditioning and forging connections within the music industry.

His consequent first alliance was with the infamous Fonda Rae with whom he wrote lyrics and sang background vocals and later would record a duet entitled "You're The Best", written by Lem Springsteen of Mood II Swing and produced by Kerri Chandler.

In 1987, while auditioning with a group for Fourth Floor Records, Arnold was offered a solo recording contract.

Later that year he released his debut single, "Take Some Time Out", produced by Tommy Musto and Yvonne Turner, which became a huge underground classic and opened doors for Arnold Jarvis worldwide.

With performances from the legendary Paradise Garage to Body & Soul, he continues to embrace dance music.

Songs like the monumental underground hit "Inspiration" produced by Kerri Chandler, Satoshi Tomiie's single "And I Loved You", written by Robert Owens and produced by the renowned Grammy winners Frankie Knuckles and David Morales, Swing 52's "Color of My Skin" and "The Joy You Bring" produced by Benji Candelario and Wayne Rollins.

The smash hit "Learn To Give", produced and mixed by Eric Kupper.

The staggering "Life Goes On", a mind-blowing collaboration with DJ/Producer "Little Louie" Vega and vocalist Lisa Fischer, followed by "Special Kind Of Love", a seasoned gospel dance gem produced by Benji Candelario and remixed by Jazz and Groove.

This ultimate collection includes 3 new tracks.

The beautiful and luminous, "Rising Into Joy", produced and mixed by Alix Alvarez; a song with an infectious bass line, beautiful backgrounds and exquisite flute solo.

"What Goes Around", a classy driving club classic produced by Vincent Kwok, and the astonishing "Spread Love", with magnificent percussion, blazing horns, and illustrious strings produced and mixed by Benji Candelario.

Arnold Jarvis is a singer, songwriter and performer.

His voice has fueled innumerable dance music anthems and his talents have and will continue to be distinct, remarkable and groundbreaking.

Perfection
This is the best dance album I’ve heard on CD Baby thus far. Arnold has great vocal range and the lyrics are stories the masses can relate to.

Color of My Skin - a joy
What a complete discovery this was. I actually found out about it on Itunes, but I don't like buying music there as I know my computer will eventually blow up and I have heard that it is tricky ot get music back.

I bought "The Joy You Bring" on vinyl when it first came out and loved it. Though it was attributed to Swing 52 and I thought they had done "Color of My Skin" before but I never succeeded in finding it. I was, therefore, overjoyedd when I found it on this CD. I had also got "Inspiration" on vinyl and a couple of the others. Arnold Jarvis's voice gives me chills and I am no longer under the delusion that I am a DJ (I do do some remixes for fun that are on my site though) it is perfect to get this album.

Just buy now and ask questions later.

Best Male Singer Out There! Incredible Compilation!
This disc compiles the best-of-the-best from Arnold Jarvis's under-the-radar but INCREDIBLE career -- going all the way back to 1987 and up to then-current-2001, it chronicles his development as songwriter, collaborator, and vocalist to excellent effect (plus the hunktastic trio of pics doesn't hurt either *swoon*). His artistry feels timeless, his perspective universal -- hopeful and wise, brooding yet jubilant. I remain eager for another collection, as a House icon AJ's releases tend to be too scattered and vinyl-only so c'mon with it on CD, please and thank you. =)
