Emily Remler, a highly acclaimed jazz guitarist, has died of a heart attack.
Miss Remler, 32, died Thursday in Sydney, Australia.
Graduated from the Berklee School of Music in Boston in 1976, Miss Remler won Times jazz critic Leonard Feather’s “Golden Feather Award” in 1981 and in 1985 was named jazz guitarist of the year by Downbeat Annual International Critics Poll. She had recorded seven albums.
Last year, Feather pronounced her performance at the Vine St. Bar & Grill here “stunning” and a “felicitous celebration of rhythmic and melodic elegance.”
