Transfer 'Tonin'' next week at

Centennial Hall

Manhattan Transfer, a Grammy Award-winning harmony group, will perform at Centennial Hall Monday, featuring selections from their newest album.

"Tonin'," Manhattan Transfer's latest album, will be released soon. The album features guest performers B. B. King, Bette Midler and James Taylor.

"It conjures up images of a few guys standing in a tiled bathroom or on a street corner, just belting it out in harmony they're tonin'," said Alan Paul, Manhattan Transfer member, in a recent release.

Manhattan Transfer has won 10 Grammy Awards in the areas of jazz and pop music. In 1991, they were awarded a Grammy for best contemporary jazz performance for their song "Sassy" from the album, The Off-Beat of Avenues.

Tim Hauser, founding member of the group, said they are not limited to one type of music; Manhattan Transfer has been played on jazz, rhythm and blues, and pop stations.

The group has recorded fifteen albums since their first self-titled album released in 1975.

The performance is scheduled for Monday at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the Centennial Hall Box Office, Dillard's and the Tucson Convention Center for $35, $29, or $19. Student, UA employee and children's tickets may be purchased for $4 off of the ticket price.

Transplant recipient doing 'great,' UMC says

The first patient to receive a pancreas and kidney transplant at University Medical Center is doing "great," according to a UMC spokeswoman.

Judy Elam, medical center spokeswoman, said Rose Castilla, a 43-year-old registered nurse, received the transplant last Thursday. She is the fifth person in the state of Arizona to receive the procedure, which took eight and a half hours to complete.

There are 120 hospitals that perform the transplant procedure across the country, but UMC is the only one in Arizona. Until 1988, Phoenix Good Samaritan performed the procedure.

Elam said Castilla had juvenile-onset diabetes and has been insulin-dependent for the last 25 years. She has been on dialysis for the last year and a half.

Castilla was chosen for the transplant, said Elam, because her blood type and her weight were similar to that of the donor's.

The patient will probably remain hospitalized for three weeks.
