I'll Remember Wig

by Frances Coche'

Wig was a favored accompanist, not only for singers but also for instrumentalists; I remember those days in the 70’s, on stage with this great musician; the way he played behind me left me free and made it easy to be me to groove,....Frances Coche'

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I was yet a baby in the music business, when a friend said, “ I have someone I want you to meet”. And took me to the home of Gerald Wiggins (Wig). Mr. Wiggins had been playing jazz all night long at a club in L.A., and hadn’t gotten out of bed, yet, by the time we arrived. He surprised me when he came out in his underwear, hands on face, looking like “Where am I?”. After some conversation, and with his young children underfoot, he went to his piano and played it. And how he played it! WOW! I vowed (on the spot) that someday I would get him to play with my group. He did…using Gerald, Teddy Edwards, and other great musicians! That was only the beginning of many “wows”. I thought I died and gone to heaven.

On another occasion, at Wig's home on a sunny afternoon, as he played his up-right piano, we taped 6 tunes, all good standards, on reel to reel. I knew I was having a fabulous adventure. His piano had a remarkable, interesting sound that those of us privileged to hear will always remember nostalgically. Now, with the new technology, the tunes have been re-mastered for your listening pleasure.

I give you, without further adieu, “I’ll Remember Wigg”.

In loving memory of Gerald Wiggins, (Wigg)

5/12/1922 - 7/13/2008

Thank You,

Frances Coche'

Every note soars straight from the heart of this amazing singer. Add Mr. Wiggins masterful support, and you have an awesome combination.

I'll Remember Wig
If I was able to give Gerald Wiggins a 5 star I'd give him a 10, as for Frances Coche' reminicent of Billy Holiday, Strong and Beautiful Feeling.

Wig and Frances
I am a very hard person to convince and I truely tear down any sound of any and all types of music because I am a hard core person , but when I heard the two GREAT entertainers ( Frances and Wig)...Well, ...let's just say, I was taken back to when Music was really music....Wigs playing was fantastic and then here comes Frances....WOW...It made me cry for more....I must admit; I was really impressed: Frances, you keep singing the way you do because I know that Billie Holiday would be impressed,
