Tim Hauser Obituary

As you may have heard, Tim Hauser has passed away at the age of 72.  We wish his family peace in this time of mourning.  The Guardian has put together a very nice obituary:


Quote taken from the above article:

“Music, however, remained his true calling, and in 1969 he formed the first version of the Manhattan Transfer (named after John Dos Passos’s novel of 1925) with Gene Pistilli, Marty Nelson, Erin Dickins and Pat Rosalia; but after recording only one album, Jukin’, in the early 1970s they broke up after disagreements about future musical direction; Hauser wanted to take the group towards jazz and swing. ”

Thanks for the memories, Tim.


We don’t have an affiliation with Tim Hauser of the Manhattan Transfer, and we’ve realized that this used to be his domain.  We’ve learned of his passing, and would like to extend our deep condolences to his family:



He brought much joy to many people, and I’m sure he will be missed.  Rest in peace.
