Napa, Ca (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
Bright lights, shiny cars, home of fashion, style, and art. But these aren’t the only things New York has helped in manifesting. The Manhattan Transfer started in New York and was named after a 1925 novel "Manhattan Transfer" which was based in the Big Apple. This American vocal music group continues to sustain their resonance no matter what. They are best known for their album The Manhattan Transfer and Extensions, and became the first group ever to win Grammy Awards 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, Duo or Group for “Until I met You.”
Heading into the new millennium, with worldwide sales in the millions, Grammy Awards by the dozen, and as veterans of sold-out world tours, The Manhattan Transfer once again proved their uncanny knack for being ahead of the times by teaming up with the then relatively unknown, but future Grammy Award winning, producer Craig Street to record their tribute to the music of Louis Armstrong (The Spirit Of St. Louis).
The release of The Definitive Pop Collection, a 2-disc retrospective of the group’s greatest hits, provides not only an opportunity to look back at one of the greatest bodies of work in American popular music, but also the chance to look ahead to the 35th Anniversary of a group that is restless, adventurous, limitless and, as the Philadelphia Inquirer so aptly put it, a group that “still can sound dangerous!”
