Emily Remler - Advanced Jazz and Latin Improvisation
This hour-long video with the late Emily Remler covers some of jazz guitar's most important topics, such as true bossa nova style, samba rhythms, unique chord positions, alternating bass lines, syncopated guitar parts, passing chords, jazz minor scales, arpeggio licks, learning to put various scales over certain chords, eighth-note improvisation, II-V progressions and V-I resolutions. Truly a jazz master class! Emily Remler was one of the hottest jazz players to come around in a long time. She recorded four solo albums (Firefly, Take Two, Transition, and Catwalk) and a duet album with Larry Coryell (Together). She toured with Astrud Gilberto, collaborated with Pat Martino, worked on movie scores and played guitar in the Broadway hit Sophisticated Ladies.
