The vocal jazz standard "Java Jive" gets a great a cappella treatment with the Kirby Shaw touch! Still swings! The four brothers of the Woody Herman sax section achieved legendary status with the tune "Four Brothers"; later Lambert, Hendricks and Ross recorded a vocal version, followed by Manhattan Transfer's rendition. Paris Rutherford's setting simplifies the vocals slightly while retaining all the drive of the original. Awesome closer to any concert! "Choo Choo Ch'Boogie" will put your choir on the jazz track with its hip '40s lyrics. Four of Manhattan Transfer's signature songs are showcased here in a 6-minute mini-medley "Manhattan Transfer Swings!" that will totally energize your concert! Includes: Four Brothers, Route 66, That Cat Is High, Tuxedo Junction.
