Release Info: Mauro Pagani - Mauro Pagani 1978
Very popular artist in Italy, both as a solo artist and as session musician, Mauro Pagani had a good solo career after leaving Premiata Forneria Marconi in 1976, tired of the long hard work on the road.
Also in 1981 Mauro began a long collaboration with popular singer songwriter Fabrizio De AndrГ©, and in 1984 they released what many consider one of the best De AndrГ© albums (and among the best italian albums of the decade).
In the 80's he's mainly worked as session musician with many popular italian artists, among which Ornella Vanoni, Roberto Vecchioni and Gianna Nannini, releasing his third proper solo album in 1991.
Other soundtracks followed in the 90's, again for Salvatores movies, Puerto Escondido in 1992 and Nirvana in 1997.
In 1999 Pagani has rejoined PFM for a single concert in Milan, as he did again in the summer of 2003.
The last studio release by Pagani has been in 2004 the remake of Creuza de mГ¤, a popular album by Fabrizio de AndrГ© in which Mauro himself played a very important role
