When The Manhattan Transfer (Tim Hauser, Cheryl Bentyne, Alan Paul, Janis Siegal) came into the KPLU/Jazz24 performance studio, they had literally just gotten off an airplane. A little jet-lagged but ready to sing, they kicked of the session with their version of Moten Swing.

When the song was over, interviewer Abe Beeson asked, “Is it that easy…once a song starts…to get happy?” Their answer, as you’ll hear, was ‘yes.’ For nearly 40 years their love of music has kept The Manhattan Transfer happy…and made them internationally famous.

Along with Moten Swing, the group performed I Know Why and ended the performance with a hidden gem called Foo-Gee, their tip of the hat to The Ink Spots.
