Jazz musician, guitarist and teacher, Guido was born in Bari, Italy in 1964 where he currently lives.

The completion of his studies and introduction into the music world came through the help of accomplished Apulian musicians, and his first professional experiences were with his father, the crooner Nino Di Leone. Starting in 1980 he deepened his jazz studies with Tomaso Lama and attended the Siena Jazz seminars. His style grows out of his study of musicians such as Wes Montgomery, Barney Kessel, Joe Pass and Jim Hall.
