Super Sax contains five late '50s/early '60s jazz performances from the Savoy vaults, reissued here by Collectables Jazz Classics. The downfall of this compilation isn't in the performances featuring Curtis Fuller Yusef Lateef, Art Pepper, Donald Byrd, and Pepper Adams. However, as enjoyable as these recordings are, they are put together seemingly without rhyme or reason. Even at a budget price, a CD that clocks in under 30 minutes, as is the case with Super Sax, should be avoided.
