Information

Supersax is known for their miraculous renderings of Charlie Parker solos (see Chasin’ The Bird). They’re still flyin’ high with two ‘Bird’ pieces – his Blues For Alice once again denotes Parker’s mastery of the blues. And then there’s Parker’s Mood, a slow blues that contains one of Bird’s most venerated solos, beautifully reproduced by the five saxes. Here the group expands, taking on three compositions and solos from the bebop giant, pianist Bud Powell. His The Fruit has the saxes demonstrating why Powell’s solo style revolutionized the approach to the piano. On Tempus Fugit time doesn’t just flie; it races on with a sense of predestined perfection. Powell’s classic Parisian Thoroughfare transports you to the city of lights with all its bright complex beauty. Trombonist Frank Rosolino and trumpeter Conte Condoli contribute stand-out solos throughout an album that includes two offerings by group leader Med Flory, a Jobim bossa, and Gloomy Sunday, with trombonist Rosolino’s beautifully melancholy interpretation of the song that Billie Holiday made famous.
