Java Jive In Space

The NASA space shuttle report on Sunday, Feb. 27, 2011 [7:00 a.m. CST] revealed that our “Java Jive” was the wakeup song of the day for the crew…

The crew’s wakeup call to begin their fourth day in space came at 6:23 a.m., giving them 30 minutes of extra sleep to make up for a later than expected bedtime on Saturday. The wakeup song for the day, “Java Jive” as performed by The Manhattan Transfer quartet, was played for Commander Steve Lindsey. STS-133 is Lindsey’s fifth shuttle mission and third visit to the space station.

Listen to “Java Jive” from our album Swing.

A New TMT Web Site

We’re in the process of building a new site that will enable easier navigation and more sharing capabilities. All aspects of the new Manhattan Transfer site will be reachable with direct links to every section, and you can share all of it on Twitter, Facebook and MySpace. We’re keeping all of the content that you enjoy on our current site, including photos, videos and music. You’ll be able to subscribe to the Tour Dates via RSS, and add the tour dates to your Google Calendar or iCal. Nifty.

Most importantly, the new site will be visible on all devices, including iPhones, iPads, Blackberries, Androids, etc.

Bear with us during the construction. We’ll be up and running full steam in no time! Join the Mailing List and stay informed!
