The Manhattan Transfer's most critically acclaimed album. It received 12 Grammy nominations, making it second only to Michael Jackson's ''Thriller'' as the most nominated individual album. The album's title Vocalese refers to a style of music that sets lyrics to previously recorded jazz instrumental pieces and replaces many instruments with vocalists (such as the big band arrangements of Duke Ellington and Count Basie). The vocals reproduce the sound and feel of the original instrumentation. Jon Hendricks, proficient in this art, composed all of the lyrics for this album. Grammy Awards for ''Best Jazz Vocal Performance, Duo or Group'' and ''Best Vocal Arrangements for Voices'' for Cheryl Bentyne and Bobby McFerrin for their arrangement of ''Another Night In Tunisia.''
