The platinum selling, world-wide chart topping super group, made Grammy history in 1981 by becoming the first group to win Grammys simultaneously in both the jazz and pop categories. Their second album earned an impressive 12 Grammy nominations, surpassed only by Michael Jackson's Thriller at the time. The Manhattan Transfer holds a distinct place in history in both pop and jazz music with their "vocalese" styling and covers of some of the greatest standards including Route 66, Java Jive, The Man I Love, Tuxedo Junction, Body and Soul, Candy, Birdland, Gloria and many others. The Manhattan Transfer is easily the most popular jazz vocal group of the 20th century, with an incomparable live stage act. The Manhattan Transfer has won 10 Grammy Awards.
