A Day In The Life…
Here’s a small slice of life from a night on the town with Emily through the eyes of fellow friend and former student, Michael Ducey titled Emily, I’ll Carry You! Written November 24, 2004.
This remembrance of meeting and playing with Emily is from Larry Coryell’s 2007 autobiography titled : Improvising: My Life In Music
The following letters to the editor appeared in the August issue of Guitar Magazine written by Edward Barr and Joel Turoff shortly after Emily’s passing. Their remembrances were quite touching and bitter sweet. If there were any questions about Emily’s dedication to her students or if she was a serious teacher, let them be silenced.
I mean please, who in the world would entertain the thought of a student at 7 A.M. !
