Paul Mazzolini (born 18 February 1960), known as Gazebo, is an Italian musician. He has a legend status among fans of the Italo disco music style, a variation of 1980s Eurodisco. Mazzolini was born in Beirut, Lebanon, the son of an Italian diplomat and an American singer. Reportedly, he learned to play the guitar aged 10 to impress a German girl in his class. As a rather cosmopolitan teenager Mazzolini began a career in a variety of jazz, rock and punk bands before meeting Rome based producer Paul Micioni. The first release, Masterpiece, was a minor hit in 1982. His footnote in charts history is his 1983 release «I like Chopin», popular opinion notwithstanding, the piano motif herein is not a Chopin composition. The release sold 8 million copies worldwide and reached No. 1 of Italian charts along with 15 other countries.The follow-up song «Lunatic» and the eponymous album also entered the Top 20 Europe. Gazebo put up his own record label, Softworks, in 1997.
