Emily Jams

Let us not forget about these great moments, both on stage, in studio and casual rehearsals of Emily with notable friends and colleagues.

It's such a treat to hear Emily laugh out loud from the energy and enthusiasm for the music.

Emily and Frank Gibson

Frank Gibson shares a song recorded with Emily that was released on ParalleL 37 from Smoke Records

"It was my great pleasure to play with Emily . In the last concert together we had many special moments. The most lasting was having the feeling of taking the music that night to a special place where it became something greater than ourselves. I treasure my memories of her and our music and I am more than happy to share the music we made together." ~ Frank

Del Sasser ~ Sweet Georgie Fame

French Guitarist Jean-Christophe and his Double Take Jazz Duo bring warm smiles with this swinging Sam Jones composition from Emily's third album, Transitions. He's a fan and player of many Emily inspired tunes including Blues For Herb, Inception and the now included Sweet Georgie Fame, played to perfection. Check out their band channel on Youtube or Jean-Christophe's personal page to hear more. They're fabuleux!

The Red Blouse

Fredero, also of France offers a confident and splendid rendering of this lovey bossa original by Antonio Carlos Jobim. His seemingly effortless performance reflects countless hours honing his skill and gift. Merci beaucoup, Fredero.

The Red Blouse ~ Afro Blue

Michael Wilson is an old school player from Ypsilanti Michigan learning first by ear, then much later with formal lessons after encouragement by a fellow musician who also introduced him to Emily's sound at the same time. From there he has simply been on fire with his learning. Emily's rendition of Jobim's Red Blouse is his latest obsession. I can't help but smile when I hear someone playing an Emily influenced song because I know that her spirit is alive and well. * His second video was actually his first and the delight he displays in playing her arrangement of Santamaria's Afro Blue is irresistible and inspiring. For gear heads, his guitar is a Heritage Sweet 16, so appropriate for how this song is delivered. Play on Michael.

Joy Spring Head & Solo

Richie Bielak lends his silky style to Emily's arrangement of this Clifford Brown standard. Enjoy his smooth transitions around the fretboard. A transcription of the solo is available on the Guest Transcription page courtesy of Mario Abbagliati so between the two we have a great start for adding elements of this song to our repertoire. Watch and Learn.

The Red Blouse

This rendition of a Jobim tune colored with overtones of Emily's swinging version is courtesy of Guatemalan Allan Urbizo. Allan's goal is to also make a trek to Boston someday for further studies, in the meantime he is polishing his skills and passion for the piano between his other academic requirements. What draws him to Emily's sound... "her ability to transmit all her satisfaction for music, and how she enjoyed being a guitarist." Indeed, Emily did radiate a love for the songs she choose to play. It was easy to feel her enthusiasm, now enjoy his.

How Insensitive

Rumor was that the Mike Outram Quartet with Kate Williams had an entire show dedicated to Emily Remler music to celebrate the memory of her 50th birthday this year . Here is the first video to be smuggled out, an abbreviated performance of How Insensitive. Enjoy Mike's silky retouch of Emily's favorite Jobim song and hopefully one of many to come from this quartet based in London.


A fine finger style jazz guitar performance of a composition appropriately titled, Blues For Em by Felipe Rosenbaum of Chile. Felipe hopes to make his way to Berklee School of Music someday and I can't imagine a more fitting audition song to offer than a tribute to alumni Emily that contains all the elements she strove to make shine in her own playing and philosophies. Let's all wish him well on his journey but with such genuine ability and creativeness so apparent, success is already his.


Key Lime Pie

Rick Stone and his superb Jazzand Quartet serve up a delicious treat for Em's memory with this Latin infused original composition based on the rhythms from her album This Is Me. While Rick never got the chance to perform with her, he too is a graduate of Berklee and traveled in the same NYC circles back
in the day. He has remained an avid admirer of her work and it shows in this world class tribute. What's in the name.... look closely and you will find emiLy there. Lovely, vibrant song, fitting for the one it honors. YouTube Preview Image

OctoberQuetzel by October Browne
This freestyle guitarist started in London at age 11 and after moving to NY years later was able to take lessons from Emily as she continued to define her art.
Click Here for October's MySpace page where you can hear Quetzel, her composition for Emily. Miss Browne met Emily in New York City around 1980 when Em accompanied Astrud Gilberto's band. She had never witnessed a woman as featured guitarist before this encounter, she recalls being mesmerized with Emily's haunting, sensual playing of Jobim and it made a big impact on her own ideas to pursue the life of a guitarist.
KittelBlues for Herb performed by Jeremy Kittel Here's a lovely taste of something different, a violin rendition of Emily's composition for Herb Ellis, from the album, Jazz Violin. Click here for more information.
