Album Review

This eclectic collection of songs encompasses jazz, bebop, swing, doo wop, rock & roll, and gospel; all are trimmed in an attractive pop texture. These 16 compositions are taken from the vocal quartet's albums, which span 12 years (1975-1987). Each selection is inviting, as all four song stylists display their individual vocal skills and admirable harmonies. Laurel Masse appears on recordings up until 1979, when Cheryl Bentyne replaced her. Other members include Tim Hauser, Janis Siegel, and Alan Paul.

MMmmm

I am in 5th grade and one of my friends is tap dancing to Baby come back to me its really good and I think that it is the best song on the album.

The Best Highlights Of The Atlantic Years

This cd samples the best work of The Manhattan Transfer from their self titled Atlantic debut to their then swan song for the label, 1987's "Brazil," the only hit missing from that cd is "So You Say." Overall this well-mastered collection is really for the casual fan, for the purists there is the anthology "Down In Birdland" which features all the Atlantic hits and choice album cuts.

Yeah, I know, I'm old fashioned and want the pink 8 track and the original songs - in the order I memorized them. That was just "The Best of the Manhattan Transfer" and was MORE NEARLY perfect - yet did not have Nightingale - we trade off on these albums - perhaps I DO need to buy them individually and put them in the order I recall, finally, after 30 years!

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 formed in 1969, the quartet recorded several albums of jazz standards as well as much material closer to R&B/pop. Still, they were easily the most popular jazz...
