"Emily Remler: a Musical Remembrance"

This week on Night Lights it’s “Emily Remler: a Musical Remembrance.” Emily Remler was a rising-star jazz guitarist in the 1980s whose style, influenced by Wes Montgomery, fused hard swing and lyricism with Brazilian and other forms of music, making her one of the most compelling newcomers around. Remler did not let the notoriously sexist barriers of the jazz world deter her from her passion for playing music, and early on she landed a contract with Concord Records. Her ultimate obstacle, however, proved to be fatal: an addiction to heroin. Remler died in Australia on May 4, 1990 at the age of 32. In this program we’ll hear music from her albums East to West, Take Two, and This Is Me, as well as collaborations with Larry Coryell, Ray Brown, and Susannah McCorkle. We’ll also talk with drummer and Remler friend Robert Jospe, who knew and worked with Remler in the mid-1980s while she was staying in Charlottesville, Virginia. “Emily Remler: a Musical Remembrance” airs Saturday, March 31 at 11:05 p.m. EST on WFIU, at 9 p.m. Central Time on WNIN-Evansville, and at 10 p.m. EST Sunday evening on Michigan's Blue Lake Public Radio. The program will be posted Monday evening in the Night Lights archives.

Thanks for pointing that out.

Suffice to say that I continue to lobby for the power/authority to do the site updates myself. :rolleyes::w
