Beginning with their first performances in the early 1970s, The Manhattan Transfer have become cornerstones in contemporary music. Founded in 1969, The Manhattan Transfer is known for their amazing harmony and versatility, incorporating pop, jazz, R&B, rock and roll, swing, symphonic, and a cappella music They were signed by the legendary Ahmet Ertegun to Atlantic Records and made their recording debut with their self-titled album in 1975. Originally known as an East Coast cult group, they soon expanded their following by starring in their own CBS-TB variety series as a summer replacement for the Cher Bono Show. They then garnered international popularity when “Chanson D’Amour”, from the 1975 Coming Out album, became a number one hit in Europe. Defying genre categorizations, The Manhattan transfer became the first group to win Grammy awards in the pop and jazz categories in one year (1981). In 1985, their album Vocalese made history as the single greatest Grammy-nominated album in history in one year, with twelve nominations. Their latest album is 2018’s The Junction.
