The Manhattan Transfer remains a cornerstone for great jazz and pop hits that earned them induction into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame. Their first hit, “Operator,” was followed by the history making “The Boy From New York City” making them the first group to win Grammy Awards in both Pop and Jazz categories in the same year. The 12 Grammy nominations they received for their album Vocalese in 1985 made it the second only to Michael Jackson’s Thriller as most nominated album in one year, and cemented the group’s status as one of the most important and innovative vocal groups in the history of popular music. “Route 66” and their rendition of “Birdland” are yet more memorable classics of their 19 singles and 29 albums over their stellar career. With worldwide record sales in the millions, their melodic and jazz infused vocals continue to bring audiences back year after year spanning generations.

The critical praise and commercial success of The Manhattan Transfer’s first seven studio albums could hardly have prepared them for the monumental 12 Grammy nominations they received in 85' for the album Vocalese. The legacy of The Manhattan Transfer continues on with Trist Curless stepping in for the late Tim Hauser.
