CD Reviews

Dated, but has some gems
Genevieve M. Ellerbee | Alexandria, Virginia, United States | 01/30/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"No, this isn't the best album Manhattan Transfer ever produced. If you're a hardcore fan, like I am, you'd want it even it it was only for some of the fluffier, pop-fusion stuff. However, missing out on the vocalese songs Corner Pocket and Confirmation, would be a crime, as would missing the acappela A Nightengale Sang in Berkley Square. Personally, I like the song Smile Again as well. Even if you buy the album only for these great songs, I bet you'll be humming some of the campier songs before you realize it. It's a shame that the song samples are composed only of these campy songs, however."
The Best Man Tran CD....wonderfully quirky and alive!

"What a diverse album...Yes, it has the 'big commercial hit' (ie the remake of Boy From New York City), but the rest- Kafka is one of the best non-verbal recordings ever made! wow, and Spies in the Night simply delightful- this CD now feels a tad 'dated', but like good wine it is to be savored..."
This album sure makes me smile again!

"This album is so touching, yet so moving! I can't say enough how I love this album so much! It shows a different side of the Manhattan Transfer. And I do like how they try to bridge the gap from not just jazz, but modern pop from the early 80s.
This album definitely stands the test of time."
