Great listening, Dave! If I recall correctly, "I'll Take Manhattan" was one of the earliest of the Rodgers-Hart standards -- somewhere out of the mid to late '20s. I liked the way you kept changing the pace, so to speak, as the improvisations unfolded. Thanks for sharing!

Incidentally, I lived about an hour west of Manhattan for many years, in NW NJ -- and I only went into Manhattan if I absolutely had to. I'm much more of a country than a city boy, I guess!
