Get Hip To This Timely Tip

Tim Hauser 

The sad news that Tim Hauser passed away sent me back to the first time future hubby and I heard the Manhattan Transfer. Let's just say we were still in high school. One listen to "Java Jive" and we were fans for life. We saw them perform at the Roxy on Sunset. We bought every album. We adored them on every harmonic level. So imagine how ferklemp I got when I learned that Tim Hauser was a dad at the preschool the eldest attended. After a school event, hubby and I spotted him walking to his car. In typical SJG fashion, I blurted out, "I love you! Your music, I mean." And he smiled, humbly and said thanks.


  1. Love, love, love them. Digging out all the old CDs now. Thanks SJG. Mr. Hauser was one hep cat...RIP.
