Product Description & Reviews

The Manhattan Transfer brought vocal jazz back to the pop charts as they rose to stardom in the States and Europe; this two-volume Rhino retrospective brings back their biggest hits and concert faves, including Operator; Route 66; Boy from New York City; Twilight Zone/Twilight Tone; Spice of Life; Trickle Trickle; Baby Come Back to Me (The Morse Code of Love) , and more. 39 cuts in all! When Tim Hauser convened the original Manhattan Transfer in the early '70s, there was more than a whiff of camp to the vocal group's pre-rock pop perspective, but what may have started with tongue-in-cheek quickly shifted into an earnest (if still good-humored) mission--the preservation of closely-arranged choral pop. From their first mid-'70s hits forward, the Transfer has gone from strength to strength, extending their reach into r&b, jazz, Brazilian pop, and even the vocal equivalent of fusion. This first-rate two-CD package focuses on their long career at Atlantic Records, where they did their best work, and is correspondingly ripe with gorgeous group and solo vocals. --Sam Sutherland
