I would like to extend love, prayers and a wish for peace to the family of Phil Wiggins. I met Phil in a Metro parking lot when I went to pick him up for a recording session (Elmer’s Blues, Color Factory, 2017). I had a Little Walter CD playing in the car and before he even sat down he said “Little Walter!”. Took him about a millisecond to recognize the player. His solo on Elmer’s Blues is complete mastery … I miss him already as do many.
