by Frank Foster
Released: Mar 1968
Label: Blue Note Records
Frank Foster's had a long and distinguished career with Count Basie's band (both as a star soloist and as group leader) but his sessions as the leader of his own unit have too often gone unrecognized. A case in point is 1968's Manhattan Fever, an undeniable set of hip-grooving soul jazz, finger-snapping mainstream bop and even the kind of experimental work you'd find on a Herbie Hancock or Wayne Shorter album from the same era. More than highly recommended, this one catches the real breadth of Frank Foster's talent as a bandleader.
