Lyle Mays, keyboardist and 11-time Grammy winner with Pat Metheny Group, dies at 66

Lyle Mays, the pianist and composer who co-founded the innovative jazz fusion band the Pat Metheny Group, has died, according to an announcement posted on his official Facebook page late Monday night. He was 66.

"Lyle was a brilliant musician and person, and a genius in every sense of the word," the post reads. "From his family, thank you for loving him and his music."

Metheny posted his own tribute on Facebook early Tuesday morning.

ôLyle was one of the greatest musicians I have ever known. Across more than 30 years, every moment we shared in music was special," he wrote.
