Erin Dickins, recording artist and founding member of the jazz vocal group Manhattan Transfer, is pleased to announce a "snazzy, jazzy CD Release Concert" at Easton's Avalon Theatre Oct. 21.
Erin Dickins: I actually heard it last week (late October 2011). I like that record. It's held up for me. It's on my iPad and in a couple of my playlists. I especially like some of the early jazz vocalizations that we did. It was really our first foray into that kind of harmony.
