Gerald Foster Wiggins, Sr. (May 12, 1922 – July 13, 2008) was a jazz pianist and organist. Wiggins was born in New York City on May 12, 1922. He studied classical music, but switched to jazz in his teens. Wiggins began as a professional playing accompaniment to comedian Stepin Fetchit. Wiggins worked with Louis Armstrong and Benny Carter. He was in the military from 1944 to 1946. In the 1940s he moved to Los Angeles, where he played music for television and film.

Gerald Wiggins, a quintessential sideman figure on the West Coast jazz scene, played piano with a dexterity and facile skill that easily rivaled the witty speed of Oscar Peterson and the soulful playfulness of Erroll Garner. This was readily acknowledged by his peers in California, but not heard by the jazz world at large until this, his debut . recording, originally for the Dig label owned by the legendary Johnny Otis On these, the trio is, well, wiggin' out! The slower numbers are also done with a taste and refinement exclusive of much older players, but Wiggins has selected some numbers off the beaten path. Duke Ellington 's lovable "I Don't Know What Kind of Blues I Got," is somewhat obscure, a delicate read of "The Man That Got Away" is not the best known Harold Arlen tune, and the warhorse "Dinah" is taken at an unusually slow pace, with Wiggins inserting stride references astutely reminiscent of Garner.
