Review:

"This CD reissue brings back a trio date originally cut for the obscure Challenge label and featuring pianist Gerald Wiggins, bassist Eugene 'Senator' Wright (shortly before he joined Dave Brubeck's Quartet) and drummer Bill Douglass. Together they perform six selections from the show 'The King and I'. Best-known of the Richard Rodgers melodies are "Getting to Know You," "We Kiss In a Shadow" and "Hello, Young Lovers," although the other five songs are superior too. Wiggins, showing hints of his roots in Erroll Garner and Art Tatum, performs an enjoyable if often easy-listening set of melodic improvisations that are pleasing, even if they contain few surprises."
