The Manhattan Transfer Biography (Wikipedia)

The Manhattan Transfer is an American a cappella, jazz fusion/pop music group founded in 1969 in New York City and still active in the 2010s. There have been two editions of the group, with Tim Hauser being the only person to be part of both. The first group consisted of Hauser, Erin Dickins, Marty Nelson, Pat Rosalia and Gene Pistilli. The second version of the group, formed in 1972, consisted of Hauser, Alan Paul, Janis Siegel and Laurel Massé. In 1979, after Massé was badly injured in a car accident, she was replaced by Cheryl Bentyne. The group's long-time pianist, Yaron Gershovsky, accompanied the group on tour and served as music director. Trist Curless from the Los Angeles a cappella group m-pact became a permanent member in October 2014 following Hauser's death.

The group won various Grammy Awards in the 1980s. The group won its first Grammys in 1980 for their cover of Weather Report's "Birdland". Their recording earned them their first Grammy Award for Best Jazz Fusion Performance and the group's first Grammy Award for Best Vocal Arrangement for Two or More Voices, to Janis Siegel for her arrangement of the song. Their cover of "The Boy from New York City", won them the Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal, and "Until I Met You (Corner Pocket)" earned them a Grammy for Best Jazz Performance, Duo or Group. In 1982, the group won another Grammy for its rendition of "Route 66". In 1985, the group won Grammys in two categories: Best Jazz Vocal Performance, Duo or Group, and Best Arrangement for Voices. The group was inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1998.
