The Symphony Sessions

The Symphony Sessions

by The Manhattan Transfer



Manhattan Transfer, the unparalleled vocal jazz ensemble, now has over 35 years of repertoire to draw on. For The Symphony Sessions the harmonious quartet revisits classic performances from earlier albums. Among the newly revamped material are two of the group’s most acclaimed interpretations -- “Route 66” and “Birdland,” both of which, in their original incarnations, were Grammy-winning performances. The ten remaining tracks draw on songs that, no matter their celebrated origin, the foursome have made their own, including “Embraceable You,” “Candy,” and “A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square.” This lovely recording -- a true gift for Manhattan Transfer fans as well as all devotees of vocal jazz -- was previously available only as a limited-pressing Japanese import.
