In September we remember Emily all month long, honoring her birthday on September 18th, 1957. This year we do it in style with Wolfgang Kulawik's first ever transcription of Emily's Wes style octave-romping, full-fledged be-bopping composition called Pocket Wes, from the 1982 album, Take Two. Pocket Wes begins with a sensational flourish from note one and never looks back. Dive into the music anyway you like it and celebrate Emily in your own way throughout September. Cheers to Emily's incomparable energy and style.
I am listening now to Emily's rendition of Softly as in a Morning Sunshine, from her East to Wes album. My heart cries. Such an irreplaceable loss. Take care of young ones, old ones.
