Couldn’t Be Hotter is a live album released by The Manhattan Transfer in 2004 on the Telarc label. This is their third all-live album with Cheryl Bentyne. It was recorded during a tour of Japan over two nights at Orchestra Hall in Tokyo.
"The Transfer's first live recording in seven years. And, yes, after more than two decades in existence, they're still pretty hot."
-- Los Angeles Times
"A great live set by the vocal quartet who specialize in jazz vocalese, still harmonizing strongly with 30-plus years under their belts."
"This impressive set shows that the Transfer is still at the peak of their collective powers...it's time we acknowledged them as one of the very best of a dying breed, THE classic vocal group. This CD is proof positive . "Couldn't Be Hotter" indeed."
"Recorded in Japan, Couldn't Be Hotter fully displays the humor and soaring interplay of Hauser, Siegel, Paul, and Bentyne as they re-establish themselves as the premiere vocal quartet."
