Manhattan Transfer's Tim Hauser passed away on October 16, 2014, at the age of 72. BroadwayWorld remembers the music star below.

The Recording Academy's President/CEO Neil Portnow released the following statement "Eight-time GRAMMY winner Tim Hauser was a remarkable talent and pioneering figure in jazz vocal music. A founding member of the legendary jazz-pop quartet the Manhattan Transfer, Hauser and his bandmates have been setting the bar for vocal power and precise harmonies for more than five decades. Known for putting their unique spin on the sounds of jazz, R&B, rock, swing, and more, the ManhattanTransfer became the first group to ever win GRAMMY Awards in both Pop and Jazz categories in the same year. In addition to his impressive vocal ability, Hauser was also a gifted producer and vocal arranger. Throughout his career, his love for music and performing always prevailed, as evidenced by the group's live shows and international popularity. Our thoughts go out to his family, friends, and fellow group members, as well as to all who have been entertained by his exceptional talent."
