The Manhattan Transfer : Mecca for Moderns

The fifth record, containing the Top Ten Hit, "Boy From New York City," (which won a Grammy for Best Pop Performance) and "Until I Met You (Corner Pocket)," which won a Grammy for Best Jazz Performance, the first time a group had won awards in both the pop and jazz categories in a single year! Of course, those two songs are worth the price of the CD, but, in addition, you'll hear "A Nightingale Sung In Berkeley Square," sung a cappella, from the Gene Puerling arrangement. (Gene won a Grammy for this one!) Also: the Caribbean-influenced "(Wanted) Dead or Alive," with it's steel drums and cowbell-infectious-and Charlie Parker's "Confirmation," which predicates the group's exploration of vocalese.

Songlist: On The Boulevard, Boy From New York City, (Wanted) Dead Or Alive, Spies In The Night, Smile Again, Until I Met You (Corner Pocket), (The Word Of) Confirmation, Kafka, A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square
