Guitarists Deirdre Cartwright and Kathy Dyson join forces with a set of intimate guitar duets to to celebrate their love of the guitar and pay tribute to the late great New York jazz guitarist Emily Remler, who tragically died of heart failure at the age of 32 in 1990. 

Their two distinctive voices on the guitar perform music arranged and written by Remler, as well as their own compositions and jazz standards. They are joined by guest vocalist Sarah P. Guitar. Duo, vocal, latin inspired originals and well known jazz standards combine in an inspiring evening.

“Kathy Dyson and Deirdre Cartwright are both superb players albeit with contrasting styles that, nevertheless, complement each other perfectly. ‘All The Things You Are’ reminded me of MJQ. The interplay between the guitars could have been created by Milt Jackson & John Lewis – that’s how good it was.” Lance Liddle bebopspokenhere.blogspot.com

“If there is a more complete guitarist in contemporary music than Deirdre Cartwright I’d like to know who it is.” Dave Gelly The Observer
