Hamilton has a very rare (and somewhat odd) vocal on "By the River Sainte Marie." Otherwise, the focus is on Wiggins' infectious piano playing. He stretches out on such numbers as "The Wig" (his lifelong nickname), "Coffee Time," "Limehouse Blues," "Wiggin' With Wig," "All the Things You Are," and a three-part work titled "Ivan Suite," "Wig's Suite," and "Chico's Suite." Recommended.
