Read it from some of my friends and fellow musicians at Wikiloops first, then in other media: Lyle Mays, genius keyboarder and musician as well as a genius in maths and other sciences died two days ago. See the German and English Wikipedia pages about him, and the sad news also from Pat Metheny’s site.
It’s quasi impossible to give you a short overview over his works, but this for example is from him:
Awesome, isn’t it? And what’s less well known is that he and Pat also wrote a hit like this one:
So rest in peace, Lyle, and thanks for everything.
As always, thanks to you for reading, watching, and listening.
