The Story of this microgroove, recorded in Rome by three members of Louis Armstrong's last band, the "All Stars", with the Roman New Orleans Jazz Band, is very lively and seems to continue the tradition of the adventurous undertakings of the jazz music pioneers.
The eight pieces included in the record have been completely improvished during a long nocturnal recording session, which later became a jam session that continued until 10 o'clock next morning.
This happened in Rome, fifty years ago...
