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.

According to the Facebook post, written by his niece Aubrey Johnson, Mays died Monday morning in Los Angeles “surrounded by loved ones, after a long battle with a recurring illness.”

“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. 

“Lyle 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. “From the first notes we played together, we had an immediate bond. His broad intelligence and musical wisdom informed every aspect of who he was in every way. I will miss him with all my heart.”
