The Manhattan Transfer
The Manhattan Transfer are here to celebrate their 50th anniversary – a half-century of pop and jazz hits, supreme vocals, dynamic performances and 10 Grammys.
The Manhattan Transfer has achieved an incomparable career of pop and jazz hits, a legacy that defines the group as it celebrates over 50 years in music.
In addition to its 10 Grammy awards, the quarter has been inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame.
In 1981, they became the first group ever to win Grammys in both pop and jazz categories in the same year – Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for ‘Boy From New York City’ and Best Jazz Performance for Duo or Group for ‘Until I Met You (Corner Pocket)’.
The group’s dynamic performances and sense of style have led them to become one of the most iconic music groups in the world.
With their enduring creativity, energy, and joy in their music, the group has joined the pantheon of the entertainment industry.
The Manhattan Transfer has also recorded with artists including Tony Bennett, Bette Midler, Smokey Robinson, Laura Nyro, Phil Collins, BB King, Chaka Khan, James Taylor and Frankie Valli.
With sold-out world tours and record sales in the millions, The Manhattan Transfer continues to bring unique and extraordinary melodic and jazz-infused vocals to new and established audiences, spanning generations.
