"Vocalese" is the eighth album from The Manhattan Transfer. It was released in 1985 on the Atlantic records label.

This album is considered to be The Manhattan Transfer's most critically acclaimed album. It received 12 Grammy nominations, making it second only to Michael Jackson's "Thriller" as the most nominated individual album.

The term "Vocalese" refers to a style of music that sets lyrics to previously recorded jazz instrumental pieces. The vocals then reproduce the sound and feel of the original instrumentation. Jon Hendricks, proficient in this art, composed all of the lyrics for this album.
