The Manhattan Transfer
Date(s): Dec 06, 2014
When: 7:30 pm
Where: Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts

Tickets:  $35, $30, $25

Riding a wave of nostalgia in the 70's, the Manhattan Transfer resurrected jazz trends from boogie-woogie to bop to vocalize in a slick, slightly commercial setting that sometimes failed to gel with the group's close harmonies.  Originally formed in 1969, the quartet recorded several albums of jazz standards as well as much material closer to R&B/pop.  Still, they were easily the most popular jazz vocal groupof their era, and the most talented of any since the hey day of Lambert, Hendricks & Ross during the early '60s.
