The family of orthogonal polynomials corresponding to a generalized Jacobi weight function was considered by Wheeler and Gautschi who derived recurrence relations, both for the related Chebyshev moments and for the associated orthogonal polynomials. We obtain an explicit representation of these polynomials, from which the recurrence relation can be derived.
