    Wow, very nice. Possibly the best sound clip I have ever heard on the TDPRI. Great tone and feeling. I hope more members find this and have a change to give it a listen.

    Gorgeous!
    Emily and I were roughly the same age, and I always admired and felt a kinship to her.
    Thanks!

    Nice...... I haven't heard Emily on my mp3 player for a while. I'll have to listen to something tomorrow. A real shame she left us so early.

    Kenny, nice to see you back. So sorry for your loss, but like Fletch said, that was a very nice tribute. Just beautiful.

    Beautiful piece...love the tone & spacial interplay between yourself & the double bass. It captured the moment while drinking coffee, watching people & cars go by, in the rain. Do I hear a little Kenny Burrell in there?

    Great tune and excellent recording. Thanks for posting. I went to school with Emily, don't remember much from those days other than thinking she was cool (and cute) and hanging out a few times. And borrowing a weird Ovation amp from her. Several years past by and then found out from friends she was gone.

    sweet/bittersweet. wonderful piece. great feel. thanks for posting.

    I only stumbled into Emily Remmler a few years ago on youtube and was floored/amazed/entranced. loved her approach to swing blues/bebop.
