“An explosion, in gale wind proportions, of musical enjoyment, creative genius, vocal excellence and a boatload of fun.”
The Summit: The Manhattan Transfer Meets Take 6
A Celebration of the Manhattan Transfer’s 45th Anniversary
Ten voices strong and with 20 Grammy Awards between them, the dream-team combo of the Manhattan Transfer and male gospel ensemble Take 6 promises an unforgettable evening of crystal-clear harmonies, gospel grooves, lush melodies, and the uplifting experience of extraordinary voices raised in song. Celebrating the Manhattan Transfer’s 45th anniversary, this rousing vocal extravaganza was the subject of a PBS special called The Summit. The two groups will sing separately and together—both a cappella and backed by a sleek live band—and then join forces for a thrilling “battle of the bands.” Expect favorites like “Operator,” “Birdland,” “Boy From New York City,” and “Route 66,” plus music by Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder, tunes from the Great American Songbook, and new arrangements prepared specially for this tour.
