Primarily recognized as an award-winning jazz vibraphonist, Mike Mainieri's equally remarkable talents as producer, arranger and composer have contributed to shaping the cutting-edge in music. Throughout his career, Mike has collaborated with the world's most formidable jazz players, produced numerous albums and discovered a host of innovative, young talent.

At the age of 14, his own jazz trio was touring with the Paul Whiteman Orchestra; by 17 he was playing and arranging for Buddy Rich's sextet - a tenure which continued up until 1962 - and at the age of 18, he won the International Jazz Critic's Award. In 1962, he joined the groundbreaking jazz/rock group Jeremy & The Satyrs and performed with such monumental figures as Frank Zappa, Richie Havens and Jimi Hendrix. From 1969-1972, he was an integral part of the White Elephant Orchestra that created so many musical directions for the decades to follow.

During the late '70's, Mainieri founded the pioneering jazz fusion group Steps Ahead, delving into contemporary sounds while maintaining experimentation and compositional integrity as a launching pad for young talent and new musical ideas. He subsequently founded NYC Records; an extension of himself, the independent label is a vehicle for exposing new ideas grounded in the jazz idiom.
