The Transfer's style adapts well to this colorful recording, produced in 1987. Drawing upon the South American continent for thematic inspiration, as well as the characteristic rhythms and orchestration, the result is a satisfying world and jazz fusion of warmth and cool. ''Notes From The Underground'' captures a groove that is indelible, complimenting the distinctive melody. ''Soul Food To Go,'' ''The Zoo Blues'' and ''Metropolis'' are contemporary pop, but with a welcome complexity; ''Capim''
The Very Best of the Manhattan Transfer

The most comprehensive single-disc collection from jazz and pop's leading harmony vocal group!Certified platinum by the RIAA. (11/93) This is an excellent collection of many of the high points of the Manhattan Transfer's first decade, demonstrating both their reach and their grasp as they draw material from swing, modern jazz, and doo-wop into their own distinctive style. There's a tongue-in-cheek cool that connects the swing of Erskine Hawkins's ''Tuxedo Junction'' to the elemental girl-group h
Frank Sinatra's Greatest Hits

1987 collection issued through Reprise. Out-of-print in the US. A fairly generic, consistent mid-'60s-era package--which means it rules. Greatest Hits Vol. 1 concentrates on chart hits, but nonetheless packs some wild cards. ''Forget Domani'' and ''World We Knew (Over and Over)'' are odd choices, and don't turn up much. There are also, naturally, lots of tracks missing. It's unclear why ''Forget Domani'' would displace, say, ''Anytime at All,'' but these are minor complaints, and if you don't ha

Sinatra and Sextet: Live in Paris

Live in Paris captures Frank Sinatra in 1962, circa ''Come Fly with Me,'' smack in the middle of his shift from swinging cock-of-the-walk to schmaltzy, cocky pig. So he'll bring tears to your eyes with the dignity and gentle reverence he pours into ''Ol' Man River,'' then leave you cursing when he tags it with a smarmy ''That's a song about Sammy Davis' people.'' Live in Paris is loaded with similar groaners, but the disc also includes cooking, intimate versions of ''My Funny Valentine,'' ''In T

Songs from Africa: Just by reading this subtitle, one might well ask oneself whether an album with such an unpretentious title would ever manage to find its way to the charts. But as soon as the disc is placed on the turntable, all doubts are dispelled that this collection of songs was actually one of the top sellers of its genre in the Sixties. The melodies, all of which stem from South African tribal songs, are treated lovingly to sensitive new arrangements. It goes without saying that the pro

Includes booklet. Cover slightly yellowed. Discs look brand-new. This two-CD set collects Ella Fitzgerald's work with the Chick Webb Orchestra from 1935 to 1938, including the subgroup that recorded under her own name, Ella Fitzgerald and her Savoy Eight. Fitzgerald was a teenager when she began recording with Webb; the complete singer of ballads, show tunes, and scat improvisation existed only in the future. What Fitzgerald possessed was a great voice in embryo, and these CDs give listeners a c

George Gershwin. Cole Porter. Richard Rodgers. They say no one can write like that anymore, but Susan Werner has added a new chapter to the Great American Songbook. Susan Werner's fourth nationally released recording charters somewhat new territory in style, while it offers the same high quality writing that her fans have come to expect. She performs 12 original compositions in the songbook style. And in this nod to the composers of standards, she's breathed new and brilliant life into the popul
