The MT is accompanied by The Manhattan Transfer Band, Yaron Gershovsky on keyboards, Alex Blake, acoustic and electric bass, Wayne Johnson, guitars, Don Roberts, reeds, and Buddy Williams, drums. The 13 tracks were recorded live at Nakano Sun Plaza Hall in Tokyo in February of 1986, and the liner notes are remarkably zenlike: The names of the songs, the names of the musicians and the date of the recording. After all, this is The Manhattan Transfer, one of the most exciting vocal jazz bands ever to step onto a stage enough said! Collectables. 2002.
