Between the mid-1940s and the 1950s, while some Italian musicians were being influenced by the Bebop and, later, Hard bop, there was a resurgence of interest in traditional jazz, which originated and took root in New Orleans in the early 1900s

Many are the bands dedicated to the promotion and popularization of this jazz genre in various parts of Italy: the Original Lambro Jazz Band and Milan College Jazz Society, the Riverside Jazz Band, which included guitarist Lino Patruno, the Bovisa New Orleans Jazz Band, in Milan, the Junior Dixieland Gang, the Roman New Orleans Jazz Band, and the second Roman, led by double bassist Carlo Loffredo, the various ensembles of trombonist Marcello Rosa, in Rome

The entire material recorded on the analog medium shared by Michele Zottis was digitized and restored by sound engineers at the Saint Louis College of Music in Rome under the supervision of Paolo Marra, curator of the Archives of Jazz in Rome
