The Manhattan Transfer

Origin: United States

Genres: Jazz, Pop, Vocal jazz

The Manhattan Transfer was formed at the end of the 1960s. The vocal quartet's popularity sky-rocketed a few years later, when original member Tim Hauser recruited singers Janis Siegel, Alan Paul, and Laurel Massé-replaced by Cheryl Bentyne in the late 1970s. Around that time, the foursome started making its mark with an eclectic repertoire of jazz, pop, and R&B, mixed with a revival of music trends like doo wop or vocalese. The group later dabbled in a wide array of other genres, from Brazilian to swing to children's music. In 2010, the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal presented The Manhattan Transfer with the Ella Fitzgerald Award.
