This was followed by Dreaming of Mister Porter (2000), a tribute to Cole Porter; Talk of the Town (2004) with Kenny Barron, David "Fathead" Newman, Chuck Mangione; and Let Me Off Uptown (2005), a tribute to Anita O'Day. While still a member of the Manhattan Transfer, she recorded the album Duets with bassist Rob Wasserman. In 1991, she collaborated with Mark Isham on a song for the soundtrack to the movie Mortal Thoughts  . Grammy Award for Best Arrangement for Voices, "Another Night in Tunisia" (from Vocalese), Cheryl Bentyne and Bobby McFerrin, arrangers, 1985. Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Jazz Performance, "Sassy" (from The Offbeat of Avenues), The Manhattan Transfer, 1992.

The Manhattan Transfer's Cheryl Bentyne tries a solo album of pop standards, backed by rranger Mark Isham, and comes up with a winner. Bentyne sings both evergreens like the title track, "Fever," and Duke Ellington's "I Didn't Know About You," plus newer material, in a sensuous, smoky voice that sounds made for a late-night second set, and even with the somewhat modernistic backings Isham conceives, the songs have a traditional feel.

Cheryl Bentyne (born January 17, 1954 in Mount Vernon, Washington) is a Grammy-winning singer best known as a member of the vocal quartet The Manhattan Transfer. While still a member of The Manhattan Transfer, Bentyne first ventured out as a solo act with her appearance on bassist Rob Wasserman’s Duets album. The following year she recorded "Back in Business", with Lorraine Feather and fellow Transfer member Janis Siegel in 1990 on the Dick Tracy film soundtrack.

In 1992 she released her first solo album, Something Cool. Produced by trumpeter/arranger Mark Isham, it found Bentyne delving into pop standards in a jazz style.
