The Manhattan Transfer - Swing (1997)

Review by Scott Yanow
On this continually interesting CD, the Manhattan Transfer revisits tunes from the swing era, in some cases re-creating (through vocalese) specific recordings. Benny Goodman's 1935 version of "King Porter Stomp," Bennie Moten's 1932 recording of "Moten's Swing," Glenn Miller's "I Know Why," Charlie Barnet's "Skyliner," and Fletcher Henderson's exciting arrangement of "Down South Camp Meetin'" are among the many highlights. The vocals are superb (particularly Janis Siegel and Cheryl Bentyne), although one wishes that the individual members had more of a chance to improvise within the style. The backup groups are different than one would expect, including the Western swing band Asleep at the Wheel, violinist Mark O'Connor (Stéphane Grappelli makes a special appearance on "Clouds"), and steel guitarist Buddy Emmons. Recommended.

The Manhattan Transfer - Swing (1997)

Один из лучших альбомов лучшей вокальной джазовой группы мира — на нем они дают свою трактовку хитов эры свинга 30-40х годов. Исполнение просто фантастическое (ну да, собственно, другого и не может быть — это же Manhattan Transfer!).

В записи трех треков приняла участие техасская свинг-группа Asleep at the Wheel, а на треке Clouds отметился легендарный скрипач Штефан Грапелли.
Продюсировал основатель группы Тим Хаузер.

Заслуженное первое место среди джазовых альбомов Биллборда. В 1998 году Manhattan Transfer были приняты в зал славы вокальных групп.
