March 15, 2019- Today's Pioneer Women Jazz Instrumentalist: Emily Remler
Emily Remler was a brilliant guitarist whose style was best attributed to Wes Montgomery.
Before her untimely death at 32 she was just about to fully develop her own voice on the instrument.
Remler began playing guitar when she was ten, attended Berklee (1976-1979), and recorded as a leader for the first time in 1980. She played with the L.A. version of the show Sophisticated Ladies (1981-1982) and in 1985 had a duo with Larry Coryell, but otherwise mostly worked as a leader with her own small groups.
After recording bop-oriented dates for Concord, she had a contemporary set for Justice, and toured with David Benoit before her sudden death.
