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.
Emily's most cherished and iconic Gibson ES-330 cherry red guitar is in need of major restoration after an unfortunate home fire has left it with deep wounds. The Gibson was literally in her hands for the majority of images we have of emily playing or posing. It was that near and dear to Emily her entire career. While she owned many guitars and loved her Borys, the Gibson 330 was her first love and one she never left behind. Those interested can help the cause for saving this piece of jazz history by donating the funds necessary for restoration. Visit the GoFundMe page to pledge your support. Please join me in our efforts to save the most treasured and well-known visual memory of Emily Remler.
