Dave Pike

Came across this the other day on Facebook:

>>Dave Pike. The vibraphonist passed away earlier today at 77. Although not as well known as his contemporaries Bobby Hutcherson & Gary Burton, he made some excellent records including Pike’s Peak, It’s Time for Dave Pike, and Pike’s Groove. <<<<

The Facebook post came from http://www.jazzradio.com.  I can’t find any other news about his death.

I discovered Dave Pike from the internet. I downloaded some of his albums. Then when I could, I bought the CD. Finding Pike on the net was a good find.
