Supersax

In 1972, Med Flory and Buddy Clark formed 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, trumpeter Conte Candoli, and trombonist Carl Fontana. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

I heard them live many times, especially at Donte's. Warne was the best improvisor in the group. I don't remember Bill Perkins ever playing with Supersax. The other tenor was Jay Migliori, who actually was recorded with Bird back in the day at Storyville in Boston.
In the early 80's this group put out Supersax I, II, & III on cassette some combined with 'the Voices' which even today is still some of the best "distilled" renderings of bop jazz. If you see any early Supersax, LA or NY Voices at a store or flea market grab it!
