Former Spyro Gyra Vibraphonist Dave Samuels Dead at 70

The American jazz fusion band confirmed the musician’s passing on their Facebook page

Earlier today, American jazz fusion band Spyro Gyra released a statement through their official Facebook page confirming the death of former bandmate, vibraphonist and marimba player Dave Samuels, who was aged 70.

The statement also indicated that Samuels was battling with an undisclosed illness saying, “He has not been well for quite a while.”

Samuels’ career took him from teaching percussion at Boston’s Berklee College of Music to recording with Spyro Gyra in 1979. The musician went on to join the band as a full-time member in 1986 and stayed with them through the Nineties after which he went on to form the Latin jazz band Caribbean Jazz Project. Even though he departed Spyro Gyra as a full-time member, Samuels still contributed to the band on later albums.

>> Today the world said goodbye to Dave Samuels, a man of great talent, intelligence and wit. He has not been well for quite a while, but the pain of his passing is as acute as it would be even if it had not been long expected. Farewell, brother.
