Live in Ireland
Emily Remler with Astrud Gilberto – October 28th 1983 at the Opera House, Cork, Ireland.
Emily spent several years touring as a guitarist with Astrud Gilberto’s band in the early 80′s and often referred to the experience as being an important part of her musical development.
Kansas City, Missouri
~ Moanin’ ~ Secret Love ~ Sweet Georgie Fame ~
The following three videos of the Emily Remler Trio are from a PBS television broadcast out of Kansas City, Missouri in 1989 called Ruth’s Music Corner, featuring outstanding bassist Kelly Roberti and percussionist Brad Edwards. It begins with the wonderful Bobby Timmons blues tune called Moanin’, one of her personal favorites when touring, followed by Sammy Fain’s Secret Love and ending with Sweet Georgie Fame from the modest and brilliant composer, Blossom Dearie.
~ Ruth’s Music Corner Interview ~
A short impromptu conversation taken from the same PBS show mentioned above with local jazz personality Ruth Rhoden.
~ Stormy Weather Blues ~
From the Jazz In Concert series, recorded in Bern, Switzerland 1986 with Barbara Dennerlein doing amazing things on a Hammond B3 and Emily jamming away on a sassy little Gibson ES 125 (which may have been borrowed since she never mentions owning one or plays it at later performances.)
This is a lovely and soulful original from Barbara herself, showcasing her talents as a player and composer. A brilliant song performed never better than by this masterful array of musicians on this classic live recording. For more information check out Barbara’s website at the following link:

~ Tribute To Charlie ~
This is another Dennerlein composition that swings like nobody’s business! I must confess, I didn’t know Barbara’s work before viewing these shows but enough can’t be said about her abilities on the B3 and her feel for jazz, it’s very impressive. She is a world class musician and numerous videos are available on YouTube that display her talents, so don’t miss out on seeing more of her concerts there.

~ My Latin Brother ~
This selection from the Dennerlein Switzerland show highlighted below is a fabulous George Benson tune that Emily loved and played in many live venues and spotlights her gift for bossa nova. Sonny Fortune’s flute gives it a beautiful Latin groove and as usual, Barbara’s keyboard adds a gorgeous flair .
~ My Funny Valentine ~
Listen as Emily accompanies Kim Parker, the stepdaughter of legendary Bebop Saxophonist Charlie Parker, on this glorious Jazz standard by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart.

This conversation is a short interview taken from her appearance with Barbara’s group and it’s so nice to have it in video form so we can enjoy the expressions behind the words as she causally lights up for this exchange between sets.
