Overview

Vocalese-vocal harmony band The Manhattan Transfer almost singlehandedly resurrected a nostalgia craze during the 1970s and 1980s that brought boogie-woogie and doo-wop jazz back to the forefront of pop music culture, with arresting renditions of such tunes as "Birdland," "Chanson d'amour" and "Java Jive." That outfit headlines this brief concert film, mounted to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the group's formation. It includes the standards: "Route 66," "Embraceable You," "On the Sunny Side of the Street," "Someone to Watch Over Me," and "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square."
