Man Of Many Parts
Label: Original Jazz Classics
Best known as a flutist, Buddy Collette also plays the clarinet as well as the tenor and alto saxes on his first solo release (he even penned the majority of the tunes!). On board are fellow West Coast stalwarts Barney Kessel (g), Gerald Wiggins (p), and Gerald Wilson (tr). A tasty way to discover the unique, breezy sound of L.A. cool jazz in the 1950s.
