Album: Mecca for Moderns (1981)
  • songfacts ®
  • Manhattan Transfer had a lot of success working with Jay Graydon on their 1979 album Extensions, so they used the producer again on Mecca for Moderns. Graydon explains this instrumental track: "There was a guy named Bernard Kafka that was a friend of the Transfer's. He had this little piece of music they played me, and they wanted to record it. I said, 'This is not complete. It needs another section or two.' And I remember sitting down and writing another section. I can't remember if Kafka was around or not, but I said, 'Man, we need this. This has got to be part of it.' And everything worked out." (read more in our interview with Jay Graydon)
