the Manhattan Transfer is an American vocal music group. The name comes from John Dos Passos' 1925 novel Manhattan Transfer and refers to the group's New York origins. The first manifestation of the group was established in 1969 in New York City by Tim Hauser, Erin Dickins, Marty Nelson, and Pat Rosalia. The group's next album, Vocalese received twelve Grammy nominations-at the time making it second only to Michael Jackson's Thriller as the most nominated single album ever. The group won in two categories: Best Jazz Vocal Performance, Duo or Group, and Best Arrangement for Voices. This was followed by a live recording of many of these songs titled Live. This concert, recorded in Japan, was also released on VHS and DVD, later titled as Vocalese Live.

1986 Manhattan Transfer Live.

Manhattan Transfer has now been performing for an amazing 36 years (26 for Cheryl Bentyne), and it's doubtful they'll ever top "Vocalese," the dazzling recording on which they manage to execute John Hendricks' Joycean transcriptions of Clifford Brown-Sonny Rollins' solos without missing a beat.

Description: The Manhattan Transfer flex their jazz muscles in this 80-minute, 19-song concert, recorded over two nights in Tokyo in 1986. The quartet (Tim Hauser, Janis Siegel, Alan Paul, and Cheryl Bentyne) were touring in support of their hit Vocalese album, and much of the show is devoted to that style, which consists of singing words over existing jazz instrumentals. Tunes by Woody Herman, Count Basie, Sonny Rollins, Miles Davis, and others feature lyrics by Jon Hendricks, one of the pioneers of vocalese; it's a bravura performance, with all four singers effortlessly negotiating the.
