The Manhattan Transfer is a jazz vocal group founded in 1969 that has explored a cappella, vocalese, swing, standards, Brazilian jazz, rhythm and blues, and pop music. The first group consisted of Hauser, Erin Dickins, Marty Nelson, Pat Rosalia, and Gene Pistilli. The second version of the group, formed in 1972, consisted of Hauser, Alan Paul, Janis Siegel, and Laurel Massé.
With a title like Vibrate, it would seem that the Manhattan Transfer had filled their first studio disc in four years with jazzy and exciting vocal workouts intended to shake the speakers. But the title is a bit misleading as Vibrate is one of their most subdued and elegant recordings, and one that harks back to the days of Mecca for Moderns where pop tangents were part of their repertoire. With an arrangement that remains fairly intact from the Brenda Russell original, "Walkin' in New York" begins the disc with a summery sidewalk swagger that sets the relaxed tone of the disc.
Brasil was The Manhattan Transfer's tenth studio album. It was released in 1987 on Atlantic Records. This album was a new foray for the group into Brazilian music. During the recording sessions, they worked with many songwriters, including Ivan Lins, Milton Nascimento, Djavan and Atlantic Records Jazz recording artist Gilberto Gil. After the initial recording sessions, the songs were re-arranged and then fitted with English lyrics.

If you like the Manhattan Transfer, and I have for the past 35 years, you'll love their CD "Vibrate. There are two standards on the CD; Embraceable You and a medley of Come Softly to Me/I Met Him on a Sunday. In addition, there are cute ditties like Doodlin', Vibrate and The Greek Song. All the songs are delightful, with a smooth, harmonic blend of the groups two male and two female voices. Transfer the CD music to an MP3 player, and the sound is great for the gym, or laying in your back yard, just doodlin' The Manhattan Transfer has picked an eclectic group of songs, and performs them outstandingly! The album has a smooth, laid back feel that took me a little bit to warm up to, but now every time I listen I just sink into the groove and enjoy the journey.
