Don't miss this concert tribute to the late Dave Samuels, a master mallet player whose primary instruments were vibraphone and marimba.

A winner of Grammy and Latin Grammy awards, Samuels had a long association with the band Spyro Gyra and was cofounder of the Caribbean Jazz Project, as well as several other groups, including Double Image, Gallery, and the Skylight Trio.

Backed by Samuels's rhythm section, professional and student mallet players will play tribute to the master's legacy. Jonathan Singer, a renowned xylophone virtuoso and former student of Samuels, plans a special presentation.
