The Offbeat of Avenues

The Offbeat Of Avenues was the first of two albums for Columbia Records and the first Manhattan Transfer album where the majority of the songs were either written or co-written by the members of the group. The album yielded them yet another Grammy, this time for Best Contemporary Jazz Performance for the song “Sassy.” The song has lyrics by Janis Siegel and Cheryl Bentyne and music by Siegel and Bill Bodine.
