The sizzling, sassy jazz vocal quartet Manhattan Transfer, featuring Mount Vernon native Cheryl Bentyne, started as a folk group inspired by vintage swing, exemplified by the wonderful, tongue-in-cheek early hits “Operator” and “Java Jive.” Glitz, bebop and doo-wop soon followed, and MT moved beyond the hippie crowd to international stardom. Ten Grammy awards down the line, the quartet’s most recent recording is “The Chick Corea Songbook.”

Note that Tim Hauser (far left), due to recent surgery, is not on this tour. He is replaced by Trist Curless of the group m-pact. The shows are part of the Earshot Jazz Festival.

Manhattan Transfer

7 and 9:30 p.m. Friday-Sunday, at the Triple Door, 216 Union St., Seattle; $30-$50 (206-838-4333 or www.thetripledoor.net).
