The Spirit of St. Louis
2000 – Atlantic
THE SPIRIT OF ST. LOUIS is The Manhattan Transfer’s spirited interpretation of the music of one of the greatest musical figures of the 20th century, Louis Armstrong. Produced by Craig Street, The Spirit of St. Louis captures the vocal group at its best, with strong individual and group performances wrapped around evocative arrangements that are both a nostalgic pastiche from the 1920’s to the 1950’s, and a completely modern take on Louis. This is a loving homage to a unique voice in musical history.
