Product Description & Reviews

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 harmonies of "Boy from New York City" and the TV themes like "Route 66" and the variations on the "Twilight Zone." More traditional jazz skills, though, are apparent in their renditions of some Jon Hendricks vocal classics. Composer Jimmy Giuffre plays saxophone on their version of his "Four Brothers," a key theme for bandleader Woody Herman, while there are also stellar renditions of Weather Report's "Birdland" and the standard "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square." It's an entertaining collection by a group that's never let itself be confined by the expected. --Adam Rains

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 ''W...
