Mike DiBari


Boston-based jazz blues guitarist Mike DiBari began his studies at the Manhattan School of Music in New York City, studying classical guitar with Nicholas Goluses and Mme. Segovia. Inspired by B.B. King and Freddie King, among others, DiBari earned a bachelor's degree from the Berklee College of Music in Boston in 1994, and formed the Mike DiBari Swingtet. Upon the completion of his studies at Berklee, he formed the Palomino Records label and released his debut album, Jumpin' the Blues (1997). Recorded live at WJUL 91.5 FM in Lowell, MA, on the Blues Deluxe show hosted by John Guregian, the album showcased DiBari's grasp of jump blues and swing, garnering positive press in the process. His next two albums, Rotary Ahead! (2003) and Music of the Spheres (2007), featured the Mike DiBari Trio and showcased the range of his composition skills.
