Toronto-born tenor saxophonist Georgie Auld (1919-1990) spent most of his working life in the United States. He was a product of the big bands, playing with the likes of Bunny Berigan, Artie Shaw and Benny Goodman.
The content of the LP is exactly what you might expect -- one dozen ballad standards, including Earle Hagen's Harlem Nocturne. The MP3 is taken from a 45 rpm DJ single.
(For a sample of Auld's R&B-tinged playing, read this earlier post.)
Manhattan with Strings has never received a digital release. A few of the same tunes are on a download album, The Very Best of Georgie Auld, available from iTunes and other sources. This appears to be of somewhat dubious origin and it's not clear to me whether these tunes are the Manhattan with Strings tracks as the running times vary by up to 10 seconds. Buy with caution.
Here's another slice of Mr. Auld. They Can't Take That Away from Me comes from the LP In the Land of Hi-Fi with Georgie Auld and His Orchestra (EmArcy, 1955).
