– Swingin’ w/ Kareem Abdul-Jabbar backstage at Town Hall NYC 2015 –
Be sure to check out A PENTATONIX CHRISTMAS and Track #3!
from PTX’s Scott Hoying…
“A Pentatonix Christmas” also features a collaboration with the Manhattan Transfer, one of PTX’s idols, on “White Christmas.” “It was so amazing,” Hoying recalls. “We’re definitely vocal group nerds. We always heard about them as one of the most iconic vocal groups of the past. Our old sound guy sings in (the Manhattan Transfer) now. He had that connection to them so he texted them and they were totally down with it. We got the most amazing version of ‘White Christmas’ I’ve ever heard, just insanely, completely difficult. The Manhattan Transfer is the bomb and they just killed it. It’s one of the top two, top three Christmas songs we’ve ever done.”
We’re hitting the road this fall with TAKE 6 for an unforgettable concert series… See YOU at THE SUMMIT!!!
“The Manhattan Transfer and Take 6 together at Town Hall… You could hear so much profound and delightful artistry. You could feel how much fun they were having. I can’t think of enough superlatives. How about “WOW X 10!”
— Michael Bourne, WBGO Jazz 88.5 FM
“Take 6 and The Manhattan Transfer have combined their talents to create an evening of incredible joy, and they do it without forgetting to swing! They must be heard to be believed.” — Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
