The Manhattan Transfer
1987: Atlantic 81803-2
Until I can think of something better to say than Richard S Ginells assessment of this album, I suggest you read what he has to say about it. I do very much enjoy most of Brasil, probably for the reasons Ginell addresses, but my particular impressions wont really bump his observations out of the picture. He got it right, as did they.
If anything, I should mention Notes from the Underground, which is both topical and enticingly arranged. Im not a serious follower of the MT, but from what Ive heard this is one of Alan Pauls rare showcasings, and its impressive as well as effective. As an album closer its even more poignant.
