#NewYorkNotes #WhomWeMiss #DaveSamuels @RecordingAcad RECORDING ACADEMY™ STATEMENT RE: DAVE SAMUELS APRIL 24, 2019

GRAMMY® winner Dave Samuels was a gifted vibraphonist known for his work with the crossover jazz fusion group Spyro Gyra. Building on the group's success, in 1993 Samuels founded the acclaimed Latin jazz ensemble, the Caribbean Jazz Project. With the newly founded group, Samuels earned a GRAMMY in the Best Latin Jazz Album category for The Gathering at the 45th GRAMMY Awards® and a Latin GRAMMY in the same category for Afro Bop Alliance at the 9th Latin GRAMMY Awards®. Samuels shared his expertise as a music educator at Berklee College of Music and the New England Conservatory of Music, thus touching the lives of many aspiring and professional musicians alike. His artistry and contributions to our creative community will be missed.
