The Manhattan Transfer showcase their stunning harmonies in an intimate concert setting, dubbed The Living Room Sessions. The million-selling vocal quartet were the first group ever to win Grammy Awards in both pop and jazz categories in the same year, and they'll get the joint jumping with huge hit favorites like "The Boy from New York City," "Spice of Life," "Operator," "Route 66," "Chanson D'Amour" and more. Tim Hauser, Cheryl Bentyne, Alan Paul and Janis Siegel are also set to share stories from their long careers and revisit some lesser-known gems from their massive catalog, which includes 1985's Vocalese. That disc's 12 Grammy nominations were the most ever awarded to a single album. Cascade, an ensemble of the Portland Gay Men's Chorus, provides the perfect a cappella opener. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
“A folk-pop trio from Seattle, performs funny original songs whose exquisite musical detail and subtle needling wit attain a level of craft not often seen in pop.” —Stephen Holden, _The New York Times _
“The group has achieved an almost cult status … their music ranges from irreverent to ironic, from satirical to sad. And despite the folk tag, their music defies categorization as it incorporates elements of jazz, pop, Broadway, reggae and classical.” —Associated Press
“Singers Ratshin, O’Neill and Adler are pitch-perfect in their delivery of often complex harmonic arrangements. … The trio officially bills itself as a ‘folk’ outfit, but has none of the naiveté that label might suggest. These are nicely edgy, sour-sweet songs, written for grown-ups.” —Michael Upchurch, The Seattle Times
