Movie Reviews

Another rare chance to hear and see Emily, worth buying for

"First of all, both Emily Remler Hot Licks DVDs are worth buying for their moving end messages and introductory performances alone.
After watching these DVDs you realize what a tragedy her death in 1990 at age 32 was and will probably want to seek out her CD's; some of which are unfortunately out of print.
Both DVDs appear to have been recorded around the same time and I suggest buying both since they cover quite diferent material.
This Jazz and Latin DVD makes a point of having metronome on 1 and 3 for Latin feel, as opposed to 2 and 4 of swing as covered in Bebop and Swing DVD.
There are more musical examples in this DVD and booklet, with plenty of licks and a clear explanation given for playing over 'Type 1' and 'Type 2' dominants; play Melodic minor from 5th for Type 1 (non-resolving) and play Melodic minor up half step for Type 2 (resolving). Some of you will know this is same as Lydian-Dominant and Altered, but Emily gives great explanations of 9 and 13 natural tensions, #11 spice and avoiding 'whitebread' sound by not starting on root.
There are a lot of pearls of wisdom and good suggestions throughout DVD and I found myself scribbling notes in the included booklet; for example 'think melodies not scale', Montgommery's heaven sound, dark to light, going home.
Part of end message in Jazz and Latin DVD is '..wanted to share some of true feelings about music, surpasses chords, technique, electronics and instrument itself, what thing is really about, be a individual, express and find own spirit, ...outlet and form of therapy, an acompaniest - get ego out of the way...' Hopefully you can hear message, learn something and be entertained by this DVD."
This is the Real Deal

"You could say I'm the ultimate guitar book searcher. In this CD Ms. Remler shows that she is so knowledgeable and proficient a musician/guitarist that she drops all pretense and plainly talks about how to make a complex subject boil down to simple, usable concepts (always the true sign of genius). She has her own charm and sense of humor as well - and oh yea - SHE CAN PLAY!!!"

"Very good Bossa Nova. (the real deal) Excellent demonstration of bass and chord syncronization. Worth every penny."
