Caputo's first LP was released in 1983. It presented a style that combined jazz and Latin-jazz pop.

Over his recording career he produced 14 albums where he continued his experimentation of musical and lyrical expression, as both an author and producer as well as guitarist and performer.

In 2003 he released "That Kind of Thing", a guitar-based Smooth Jazz album recorded in California.

In 2008 he published his first book "Disperatamente, e in ritardo cane" (Desperately, and dog-late) - Mondadori. The book is about a faded italian pop star - living in California - who goes back to Italy every now and then for a tour. Until this one time he loses his American passport and gets stuck in his old wild life.

In 2009 he released, on his new label Alcatraz Moon, the live album "La notte è un pazzo con le mêches", with his band, the Sergio Caputo Quintet experience.

In 2013 he released the 30º anniversary remake of his first album - Un Sabato Italiano 30 - which redefines Sergio Caputo's style back to his jazzy roots. He also writes a "reality" book titled "Un Sabato Italiano Memories" (Mondadori) about the years when he - a young art director in a big advertising agency - was torn between his day job and his passion for music.

In 2015 he released his first work of brand new songs in many years, Pop Jazz and Love. The album is about "happy love" and is entirely in English but for one song. The style is jazz with a twist of latino.

In 2017 he starts a collaboration with Francesco Baccini - another Italian famous songwriter - and together they tour and release the single "Non Fidarti di Me" (Do Not Trust Me). An entire album of brand new songs by both Caputo and Baccini is expected before the end of the year
