Blue Note Hawaii ~ The Manhattan Transfer: 50th Anniversary & Final World Tour
The Manhattan Transfer
50th Anniversary & Final World Tour
Riding a wave of nostalgia in the ’70s, the Manhattan Transfer resurrected jazz trends from boogie-woogie to bop to vocalese in a slick, slightly commercial setting that balanced the group’s close harmonies. Originally launched by Tim Hauser in 1969, they made their recording debut with a self-titled album in 1975 and became known for their amazing harmony and versatility, incorporating pop, jazz, R&B, rock and roll, swing, symphonic and a cappella music. Still, they were easily the most popular jazz vocal group of their era, and the most talented of any since the heyday of Lambert, Hendricks & Ross during the early ’60s.
