AllMusic Review by

On the second of three LPs matching Supersax (five saxophonists, trumpeter Conte Candoli and a rhythm section) with the five singers of L.A. Voices (which include Sue Raney on lead and leader-altoist Med Flory as one of the vocalists), only three of the nine pieces were actually recorded by Charlie Parker ("Just Friends," "They Can't Take That Away from Me" and "Bloomdido"), while the other sax choruses were written by the versatile Med Flory. The music (which includes "He Ain't Got Rhythm," "Speak Low" and "As Time Goes By") is interesting and spirited, but not too essential.
