Great Guitar Solos – Emily Remler Plays “How Insensitive”

Sorry this is late. I wasn’t feeling well early this week and have had to work on top of that. Not fun…

Time to turn left again, this time with some true, straight up Jazz.

Oh yes.

I’m going here.

Because a good guitar solo is a good guitar solo, regardless of the genre.

For those who don’t know, Emily Remler is an amazing Jazz guitarist who, sadly, died on May 4, 1990, at the age of 32. She died of a heart attack.

This is one of her many pieces, called How Insensitive. It’s an instrumental, so the whole thing is the guitar solo. It’s also live, so there’s video to watch. She was pretty amazing…

    Thanks for posting--I had never heard her before. Jazz guitar is one of those things for me—a few players I absolutely love and some that leave me cold. This is pretty solid.
    My personal faves are Stanley Jordan and Bill Frisell (very different from each other, but both incredible).
