PAOLO RUSTICHELLI - FUNKY LOVE
Among his other album projects, Paolo recorded, performed and produced for rock-jazz superstars like Carlos Santana and Miles Davis. In 1997 he released the album Mystic Man in the U.S. through the Island Records label, which featured the legendary Miles Davis, Carlos Santana, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Andy Summers and the disco diva Jill Jones. In that same year, Gavin and Radio & Records (Billboard) reported the song "Paisa" from Paolo's album Mystic Man had reached the Top 10 on the U.S. NAC Smooth Jazz charts.
In 2002 Paolo composed, arranged and produced the song "Kyrie" for Placido Domingo's Sacred Songs album. The album Neopagan, completely made with state-of-the-art plug-in technology, charted in the U.S. Radio charts in 2006 with the song "My Geisha". His latest single "Soul Italiano" (2011) has been at the Top Ten radio charts for seven weeks.
