Man of Many Parts is an album by multi-instrumentalist and composer Buddy Collette recorded at sessions in 1956 and released on the Contemporary label.

AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow:
This CD reissue of a Contemporary session shows off the many parts of multi-reedist Buddy Collette. Collette is showcased on tenor, alto, clarinet, and his strongest ax, flute. He also contributed nine of the dozen selections. The cool jazz set (which sometimes uses advanced harmonies) also features among the sidemen trumpeter Gerald Wilson, guitarist Barney Kessel, and pianist Gerald Wiggins, ranking with Buddy Collette’s best work of the 1950s (https://goo.gl/vYxAFk).
