Emily Remler – Catwalk (Full Album)

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Catwalk is the fourth studio album by jazz guitarist Emily Remler. Here she was accompanied again by John D’earth on the trumpet, Eddie Gomez on bass and Bob Moses on drums. This is the guitarist’s first album consisting of only seven of her original compositions.

Jazz critic Nat Hentoff wrote about Emily’s Remler and her musicians at the liner notes of this album: “She, of course, is hardly the sole reason for how well this album works. Her colleagues are not just casual studio acquaintances. This group has been working together quite a lot, and so these are true conversations, interweaving diverse temperaments and backgrounds into a mosaic full of supple, subtle surprises (Wikipedia).

“Guitarist Emily Remler’s fourth and Concord recording makes one regret even more her premature death at age 32. While her earlier dates were very much in the bop mainstream, this one (in a quartet with trumpeter John D’Earth, bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Bob Moses) finds her looking ahead and partly finding her own voice on her seven diverse originals. Although she never became an innovator, Remler certainly had a lot to offer the jazz world and this fairly adventurous effort was one of the finest recordings of her short career.” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
