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
Peter Mulvey is a walking secret handshake. He has been the street-singing kid in Dublin, the man fronting the storming electric band, the conspiratorial spoken-word craftsman, the Tin Pan Alley delver, an instigator in the occasional Redbird collective, and all through it he has remained the traveler out on the road, bringing his music to audiences from Fairbanks to Bilbao, Santa Monica to Montreal, in clubs, theaters, coffeeshops, the Kennedy Center, and old barns.
Mulvey continues to travel, ears open and wide awake, through the unlimited territory of music. Honing his musicianship, his phrasing, his ability to inhabit a song, he has come into his own, with a sound full of grit and warmth, at the same time startling and familiar.
His latest record, The Good Stuff (Signature Sounds 2012) is a dazzling tour de force through American song: a standards record — if the definition of “standard” was left in Mulvey’s hands. In his universe, Duke Ellington and Thelonious Monk are presumed colleagues of Tom Waits and Jolie Holland. Bill Frisell and Willie Nelson are obviously in the same wheelhouse. Bobby Charles is still alive and having coffee with a bemused Leonard Cohen somewhere in the Ninth Ward.
