(from artist's site) - From swing to hard bop with a little bit of the Mississippi Delta thrown in, Mike DiBari embraces the many sounds of classic jazz and blues guitar. When one hears Mike play the blues, you just can't help getting that low down feeling. His original compositions align bebop with a dash of the contemporary but still swing like crazy.
