BetteBack February 26, 1995: Bette Midler Guests On The Manhattan Transfer’s ‘Tonin’

From the “everybody’s doing it, so why can’t we” file comes The Manhattan Transfer, who’ve joined the ranks of pop artists bringing in multitudes of guest stars to fill albums stacked with cover songs.

Produced by Arif Mardin, the disc finds the vocal quartet wrapping impeccably smooth harmonies around the likes of Phil Collins, James Taylor, Ruth Brown and many others.

At its best, “Tonin‘” adds some new sparkle to vintage tracks, like the surprisingly contemporary version of the Association’s reefer anthem “Along Comes Mary,” or the smooth-as-silk pairings with Laura Nyro (“La-La Means I Love You”) and Bette Midler (“It’s Gonna Take a Miracle“). Read More

The Offbeat of Avenues” led Manhattan Transfer to the group’s 10th Grammy. Problem was: It turned out to be a detour.

After the foursome’s 1991 debut for Columbia Records, the vocal ensemble had a falling-out with the record company, stemming from a dispute over whether a Christmas album should be a part of the three-album deal they signed.

The fallout from the falling-out was that we didn’t hear much from Manhattan Transfer. Yes, they did “The Christmas Album” in 1992, and last year saw the release of the group’s first children’s recording, “The Manhattan Transfer Meets Tubby the Tuba.” Read More
