Across nearly five decades, the Manhattan Transfer has always been the most musically versatile of vocal groups, traveling from the retro artfulness of their early days to the pop-redefining sass of Tonin’, and from the acrobatics of Vocalese to stellar navigations of the Louis Armstrong and Chick Corea songbooks.
Acclaimed vocal jazz group Manhattan Transfer is enjoying a new phase in its lengthy career.
Beginning with their first performances in the early 1970s, the Manhattan Transfer have become cornerstones of contemporary music. They are known for their amazing harmony and versatility, incorporating pop, jazz, R&B, rock and roll, swing, symphonic, and a cappella music.
The group was signed by the legendary Ahmet Ertegun to Atlantic Records and made their recording debut with their self-titled album in 1975. Known primarily as an East Coast cult act, they expanded their following by starring in their own 1975 CBS TV variety series as a summer replacement for the Cher Bono show. Starting as an underground group in New York City, the Manhattan Transfer garnered international popularity when “Chanson D’Amour” from the 1976 Coming Out album became a number-one hit in Europe.
