Vocal Group Hall of Fame
-- inducted 1998
Manhattan Transfer founder, Tim Hauser,
died October 16, 2014. He was 72.
For more than 30 years, the quartet of Tim Hauser, Janis Siegel, Alan Paul and Cheryl Bentyne have combined their voices into an incomparable four-part harmony that has consistently set new standards for vocal music.
Spanning 20 albums, Manhattan Transfer has
earned a total of eight Grammy Awards (plus Janis and Cheryl's
individual arranger Grammys), and worldwide sales in the millions.
Veterans of numerous sold-out world tours, they also
reigned supreme as the "Best Vocal Group" for an entire decade
(1980 -1990) in the annual down beat and Playboy jazz polls
winning once again in Playboy's '92 poll.
Since their inception, The Manhattan Transfer
have refused to limit themselves to one type of music. "Our
signature is clearly four-part harmony," explains Tim Hauser.
"We based our voicings on the structure of the sax section of the
Count Basie Band blending soprano, alto, tenor and bass

Manhattan Transfer is truly eternal.
