Their second single, The Boy From New York City, made them the first group to win Grammy Awards in both Pop and Jazz categories in the same year. With worldwide record sales in the millions, for 19 singles and 29 albums, their melodic, jazz-infused vocals continue to bring audiences back year after year.
