AllMusic Review by

For the third and final Columbia LP by Supersax and the L.A. Voices, the five saxes, five voices (which include Sue Raney and Supersax leader Med Flory), rhythm section (with pianist Lou Levy) and trumpeter Conte Candoli, perform four songs recorded by Charlie Parker, John Coltrane's solo on "Someday My Prince Will Come," and Flory's arrangements on "Straighten Up and Fly Right" and three of the leader's originals (including one called "Super Sax"). The music is fun and swinging, but not as significant as Supersax's three Capitol recordings.
