Tim Hauser Has Died

Tim Hauser, a singer and showman who founded the Manhattan Transfer, a Grammy-winning vocal group that brought four-part harmonies to several decades’ worth of American popular songs, died on Thursday. He was 72. Their critically acclaimed album, 1985’s “Vocalese,” earned 12 Grammy nominations.

They were talking about this in the Jazz station where I volunteer. It took a while to be announced. Sorry for his passing.

Oh my goodness--I loved their music so much. I didn't realize he was 72.
He was a wonderful musician. Rest in peace, Tim.

Wow, really sad. I heard their great version of Weather Report's Birdland a couple of weeks ago - it reminded me how much I loved The Manhattan Transfer's covers of unusual songs (Djavan's Sina (Soul Food To Go), Twilight Zone). RIP Tim.
