LA Transfer is the newest West Coast commentary on an East Coast legend. Made up of four high caliber LA-based vocalists from around North America, LA Transfer delivers the tradition of vocalese through Manhattan Transfer classics, as well as MT-style arrangements of 1970s-2000s pop hits. Vocalists include Jenny Ing (Margo Rey Band, Brian Johnson, John Oates), Jason Maniscalco (Fame, Radio City, The Buddy Holly Story), Anne Walsh (Grammy-nominated international touring artist, faculty at AMDA, OCC), and Jeff Bratz (America's Got Talent, Cabaret, The 39 Steps); and are backed by an incredible trio including pianist Tom Zink (Grammy-nominated pianist/arranger, Yamaha artist), bassist Lyman Medeiros (Steve Tyrell Band, Michael Buble, faculty at MI) and drummer Chris Wabich (Grammy-nominated, Leonard Cohen, Sting, Mark Murphy). This performance was originally recorded live on August 27, 2017, at Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach, CA.
