Emily Remler & Catwalk

Emily Remler, whole album of Catwalk (1985).

Emily Remler (guitar), John D’Earth (trumpet), Eddie Gomez (bass), Bob Moses (drums, percussion). Even better than the ones I’ve been putting up the past few days, Firefly and Standards. It’s got to be due to the all-star ensemble, of course. Monster rhythm section brings out the monster chops from Emily. What a gem.
