The Manhattan Transfer are the New York easy listening band, formed in 1972 by Alan Paul, Janis Siegel, Laurel Masse and Tim Hauser.
They had their initial success in the US with their self-titled debut album, and the single Operator". Their next few releases had a greater impact on the charts in the UK, where single Chanson D'Amour" from Coming Out went to No.1.
The 1979 Extensions album began a golden period for the group in the US. The album features a cover of jazz group Weather Reports' Birdland". It won Manhattan Transfer the Grammy for Best Jazz Fusion Performance and is now considered the bands' signature tune. Subsequent releases would garner the band a long list of plaudits, with Mecca for Moderns providing Grammy Awards for Boy From New York City", A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square" and Until I Met You".
In 1983 the group had success in the R&B charts with the Spice of Life", a top five performer from the Bodies and Souls album, which also featured fan favourite Mystery". They hit a peak with Vocalese, the album generated 12 Grammy nominations which, at the time, was second only to Michael Jackson's Thriller album. Brasil earned the band a Grammy for Best Pop Performance, but this was to mark the end of the run, as subsequent releases have not done as well. The band still tour and have a loyal following.
In 1998 they were recognised with induction into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame.
