Produced by Tim Hauser

Combining classic jazz (bop) and doo wop, the Transfer have recorded another impeccably constructed CD. Five of the tracks were recorded live in Tokyo-of course, the quality is spot-on per usual, the group representing the pinnacle of vocal art. Listen to the group go off on a scat improv on "Jeannine": the voices trade lines with each other in a perfectly executed quadruple play! "Route 66" won them yet another Grammy, for Best Jazz Vocal Performance, and it sparkles. "Heart's Desire" is some of the best sounding doo wop we've ever heard; it's a humdinger! "That's The Way It Goes," which is dedicated to the Harptones and Criterions (Tim Hauser, bass singer of the Transfer, was a member of the Criterions as a young lad!) is all the sweeter now.
