The Manhattan Transfer is an American music group. There have been two manifestations of the group, with Tim Hauser being the only person to be part of both. The name comes from John Dos Passos' 1925 novel Manhattan Transfer and refers to the group's New York origins. Founding: The first manifestation of the group was established in 1969 in New York City by Tim Hauser, Erin Dickins, Marty Nelson, and Pat Rosalia. Gene Pistilli, a good friend, soon became an integral component, and composed for and recorded with the group. They contracted to Capitol Records, recorded several tracks, and issued their first album, Jukin', in 1971.
