Pausa Records was a mostly jazz record label, active c. 1975–1986.

The company's name came from the fact that it was from the United States division of the Italian record company Produttori Associati (PA-USA.) In Italy, Produttori Associati was best known for soundtrack albums from Italian films. The label also released a few recordings by Italian progressive rock artists such as Maxophone. Many of its releases were reissues of MPS Records recordings.

In 1990, the label lost a $4 million lawsuit for failure to pay royalties.[1]
