Paolo has dedicated himself solely to jazz performing in various line-ups from the "piano soloist" to the octet, in important jazz clubs, concerts and radio broadcasts (Radio 2 e Radio 3 RAI). He has also performed in numerous festivals in Italy such as those of Fano, Pescara, Pomigliano, Urbino, the Gargano Piano Festival, Lignano, Foggia, Bergamo, Villa Celimontana, Aosta, Ai Confini tra Sardegna e Jazz.

In 1993 Paolo recorded his first CD "Harem" with the help of Marco Tamburini, Massimo Moriconi and Massimo Manzi of Old Magic Music, Rome.

During the 1994-95 scholastic year, Paolo taught solmization at the Conservatory of Bari.

In 1996 Paolo published a collection of didactic material for the piano entitled "15 pezzi per piccoli pianisti" (15 Pieces for the Small Pianist) to assist in the development of melody (ediz. Trasimeni – Rome). In the same year, his second CD "Foto Rubate" for Splasc(h) is released, a "live" trio with Moriconi and Manzi and he published a collection of jazz piano pieces ("Jazz Reflections" – ediz. Bèrben – Ancona).

Paolo then recorded his third CD for "Modern Times" entitled "Dialogo a Due" with the trumpeter Fabrizio Bosso.

In March 1999 Paolo performed at the famous jazz club "Jazz Showcase" in Chicago and signed an exclusive contract with Hallway Records of Chicago, releasing his CD "Introducing Paolo Di Sabatino" as a quartet with Bosso, Ciancaglini and Manzi.
