Her influence ranged from Pat Martino, Wes Montgomery, Charlie Christian to Jimi Hendrix. She evolved from a bebop style to something more personal with strong latin influences.
My favourite records are “Transition” and “Take two” but they are all worth listening to.
For the guitar players I recommand her two pedagogics videos from “Hot Licks”: “Bebop & Swing Guitar” and “Advanced Latin & Jazz Improvisation”. It´s a good occasion to have a good insight on her playing and on jazz in general.
Some fans have made a very complete site about her where you can find biography, pictures, partitions, discography, interviews and a lot more. Everything is on: http://www.allthingsemily.com.
I hope that this post will make her a little less anonymous this great guitarist who had an amazing swing.
