The Manhattan Transfer

Biografia

The Manhattan Transfer es un grupo vocal de origen estadounidense relacionado principalmente con el jazz, pero también con otros géneros musicales. Se formó en Nueva York en 1972 cuando Tim Hauser conoció a Laurel Massé durante un viaje en taxi, y ambos descubrieron su afinidad por el mismo tipo de música. Posteriormente Laurel también se encontró con Janis Siegel, en ese momento cantante en un grupo folk, y la convenció de sumarse al proyecto. Read more about The Manhattan Transfer on Last.fm.
