AllMusic Review by

This Black & Blue set was pianist Gerald Wiggins' first recording session as a leader in 13 years, even though he had been quite active in the Los Angeles area during that time. Recorded in Paris with bassist Major Holley (who has a few solos on which he sings along with his bass) and drummer Ed Thigpen, Wig performs some standards (including "You Are the Sunshine of My Life," "Lover," and "There Is No Greater Love"), obscurities, and a couple of originals. The music always swings and has plenty of subtle surprises.
