Coming Out

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Manhattan Transfer's second Atlantic recording, Coming Out, showcases the talented singers Tim Hauser, Alan Paul, Janis Siegel, and Laurel Masse on a strictly pop affair. The only hints of jazz pop up in Siegel's ballad "Scotch and Soda" and a funky version of "Poinciana," on which Michael Brecker has a cameo on soprano. There is a good amount of variety and the singing is reasonably impressive, even if the spontaneity and feel of jazz is largely absent.
