Reedman Buddy Collette has spent most of his music career on the West Coast, out of the national spotlight. But it would be a mistake to overlook his distinguished career as a jazz educator, activist, composer and, of course, phenomenal t. A year later, Collette recorded Man of Many Parts, his first album as a bandleader. The album demonstrated not only Collette's mastery of the saxophone, but also his talents as a composer. In the late 1950s, the careers of Collette and his West Coast contemporaries were taking off. Many of them, including Mingus and Hamilton, moved to New York for more lucrative gigs. But Collette stayed in Los Angeles, where he became a noteworthy educator. His students included woodwind players James Newton, Frank Morgan, Sonny Criss, Eric Dolphy and Charles Lloyd.
