Album Notes
John Pagano was born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island. He originally started out as a guitar player when he picked up the instrument at age nine and taught himself to sing while strumming The Platters classic Only You. John next learned to deliver a proficient version of the show biz anthem "On Broadway" and by age fourteen he was heading up his first band. John lied about his age and his band went to work regularly throughout the northeast. It was during this time that John began to pay particular attention to certain singers. John credits his vocal style to listening to such music icons such as Stevie Wonder, Luther Vandross, Donny Hathaway and Marvin Gaye. He continued to hone his craft by listening to these legends and working six nights a week, four sets a night for years. Johns live performance regimen quickly curbed any urges to over-sing, a trait common among young singers blessed with big voices.

John's current album project is PURE IMAGINATION which features a 40 piece orchestra, transitioning effortlessly between the role of producer & vocalist and recorded at the legendary Capitol Recording Studio A. John is also a featured vocalist in music icon Burt Bacharach's band. In addition to performing with Burt Bacharach, John has worked with Grammy award winning songwriter Barry Mann ("The Best I Ever Was"), renowned composer/producer George Duke ("Change In My Life"), George Howard (singing vocals on the saxophone players album Shower You With Love) and saxman Michael Lington's "Everlasting Love" (a song John co-wrote). John has also had a song of his covered by David Cassidy ("Sheltered").

Along the way John's voice also caught the ear of Jerry Seinfeld who invited him to open for his Las Vegas and Atlantic City shows.

John also appeared in the Adam Sandler film "Click", appearing and singing in a pivotal wedding scene.

John Pagano
Fabulous voice.....saw him with Burt Bacharach quit a few years ago in Ohio and he stoled the show. I always thought no one could sing a Bacharach arrangement like Dionne, but, boy, was I wrong...p.s. Love her too!

"Pure Imagination" - the best CD of the year by the best-kept secret in the music industry. Every cut is sheer delight. I actually feel a twinge of sadness when the CD ends, because it's over. So I immediately play it again. I plan to order multiple copies, so I can give them to my friends as Christmas presents.

I've followed John Pagano since "Shower You With Love," but he's reached an exciting new plateau with "Pure Imagination." I've listened to Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett, and now I'm listening to John Pagano.

Enough said.

I totally love this album and it hasn't left my CD player since receiving it a couple of weeks ago. There really isn't a song choice that I don't like.I have loved "Pure imagination" since i heard it on "Kenny Login's Back to Pooh Corner". I am hoing it gets the promotion and airplay it deserves. Look out Michael Buble.


Run, do not walk, to purchase this CD!
What a great collection of classics. John does a fantastic job interpreting these old favorites. Great orchestrations and John has a terrific voice!

Pure Heaven!!!
Saw a Burt Bacharach concert on TV here in England and had to find out more about the amazing male singer. With great expectations bought this CD and it did not disappoint. Great selection of songs, great arrangements and fabulous, smooth vocal. More please!!

Pure Imagination is a must buy!
Not since The Temptations' "For Lovers Only" has an artist blended classic standards with contemporary soul and produced a great CD, appealing to both young and old. John Pagano has a mesmerizing voice which soars above the mediocre mainstays permeating the airwaves today. He isn't your average, sounds like everyone else, studio artist. John is a pure singer backed by actual musicians singing real music. It is hard to pick a favorite track when each is perfectly arranged and delivered. But, I must admit that "Any Day Now" has a groove so infectious that it leaves you feeling that your lover possibly leaving might not be such a bad thing after all. I can't wait to see him perform live, but will settle for the many clips on You Tube until the tour stops in my city.
