CD Reviews

If the "Bird" were alive today, he would be smiling!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Wow! Can we have more albums like this? Supersax can give the "Four Brothers" a run for their money. Med Flory deserves a standing ovation for his faithful transcriptions of Charlie Parker's much envied solos. Take a bow, Med!I first heard the Supersax group on vinyl on the album, "Supersax and L.A. Voices," many years ago. It was a superb album and I've been waiting forever for that album to re-issued on CD. "Supersax Plays Bird" fulfills half of my yearning for re-issues of this group's other earlier recordings with the L.A. Voices. Don't let me wait any longer, please."
Pure Fun
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm struggling to explain why this earliest Supersax recording seems so much better than the later releases on MPS and CBS (and those aren't bad). Is it because of Conte Candoli's brilliant trumpet solos (the best I've ever heard him), the mixing that gives all instruments great presence or ...? Whatever the reason, it's awesome -- pure bebop and pure fun to listen to."
Frankie Rosolino was the best!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Just listening to the awesome technique of the GREAT, late Frank Rosolino is worth the price of this CD alone."
