The Deal

The Manhattan Transfer

Forty years is a long time for a group to keep performing the way they did when they hit it big—fortunately for The Manhattan Transfer, they don’t have to. The vocal quartet’s four-decade run has seen them endlessly experiment in genres and styles, dabbling in jazz, pop, R&B, and doo-wop. Active in its current form since 1972, albeit with the swapping in of Cheryl Bentyne in 1978 and plenty of haircuts since then, the group has released 23 albums and garnered 10 Grammy Awards, including one for their 1980 Weather Report cover, “Birdland.” Their most recent endeavor, 2009’s The Chick Corea Songbook, has earned plenty of praise, including high marks from Jazz Times, which described it as “less an album than a series of soul-stirring journeys.” Expect to wander through some of its tracks such as “500 Miles High” alongside standbys such as Nat King Cole’s “Route 66” and Louis Jordan’s “Choo Choo Ch’ Boogie.”

Take 6

  • Number of combined Grammy and Dove Awards a capella group Take 6 has earned: 20
  • Famous collaborators: Stevie Wonder, Queen Latifah, Don Henley, and k.d. lang
  • Movie soundtracks they’ve appeared on: Dick Tracy, Do the Right Thing, and Boyz n the Hood

Count Basie Theatre

Upon entering the Count Basie Theatre, guests may feel as though they’ve slipped through a crack in time and ended up in the early 1900s. Opulent marble staircases and gold details grab the eyes of visitors, recalling the decadence of Hollywood’s history and gently pulling them to the auditorium. There, the acoustically pleasing construction wins out as sound spreads and funnels through a sunburst dome embellished with a dangling chandelier. Since opening in 1926, the Count Basie has earned numerous accolades, including a nod from Pollstar magazine, which listed it as one of the Top 100 Worldwide Theatre Venues.
