Manhattan Fever is an album by American jazz saxophonist Frank Foster recorded in 1968 and released on the Blue Note label.[1] The CD reissue added five previously unreleased recordings from a 1969 session as bonus tracks.[2]


The Allmusic review by Steve Leggett awarded the album 3 stars and stated "Foster's compositional and arranging talents are at center stage, but when he steps out front as a soloist like he does on "The House That Love Built," he shows why he is a top line tenor sax player".[3]
