The Manhattan Transfer

Grammy-Award winning jazz/pop vocal group, The Manhattan Transfer celebrates its 40th Anniversary with the highly anticipated release of The Chick Corea Songbook. The Chick Corea Songbook, which marks the highly innovative vocal quartet's first new record in five years, was inspired by the classic work of jazz great Chick Corea, and features fresh and exciting vocal interpretations of many of his popular compositions, including "Spain" and "500 Miles High." Corea, who plays on the CD, has also contributed an original composition entitled "Free Samba" especially for this album. The forthcoming release also features special guest appearances by some of the finest musicians in the industry including Christian McBride, Airto, Alex Acuña, Fred Hersch, Edsel Gomez, and Lou Marini among others. The platinum-selling, world-wide chart-topping super group, widely renowned for broadening the musical landscape with their innovative, genre defying sound, made Grammy history in 1981 by becoming the first group to win Grammys simultaneously in both the jazz and pop categories.
