Manhatten Transfer review

By weeklyvolcano on October 2, 2006

The Manhattan Transfer parked at Seattle's Jazz Alley for a long weekend of two set nights.  Although showing their age, the quartet of vocal magicians sounded excellent plowing through a 60 minute set of new and golden oldies.  The group that has performed for 30+ years delivered sensational renditions of "Birdland," "The Boy From New York City," and "Soul Food To Go."
Those not familiar with this power group, they have walked away with countless Grammys over the last three decades.  Look for a new holiday CD this winter, plus a CD they recorded with the Czech Symphony. â€" Ken Swarner
