Biography

Formed in 1972 by Med Flory and Buddy Clark, Supersax was comprised of a five-sax nonet (usually including a trumpeter) dedicated to playing the harmonized solos of Charlie Parker. Their recordings for Capitol, MPS, and Columbia (unlike their live performances) did not contain any individual saxophone solos and found the sax section playing note-for-note Bird improvisations (including the roller-coaster “Ko Ko”) with impressive precision. Clark left the band in 1975, but Flory continued the group on a part-time basis for several decades, sometimes using the L. A. Voices. Among the top sidemen through the years have been Bill Perkins, Warne Marsh, Jay Migliori, Jack Nimitz, Lanny Morgan, Don Menza, Ray Reed, trumpeter Conte Candoli, pianist Lou Levy, and trombonists Carl Fontana and Frank Rosolino.

    I've got these guys in vinyl (which means I haven't played them for a while). I remember them as being pretty good .... and they covered an awful lot of decent modern jazz standards. Pity none of them are available for full playing on this site.
