The little known story of Nick LaRocca, the son of Sicilians, born in New Orleans at the end of the nineteenth century.  LaRocca made the first record in the history of jazz, Livery Stable Blues, with his Original Dixieland Jazz Band in 1917. The record sold more than a million copies and the Original Dixieland Jazz Band would become the highest-paid jazz band in the world.

The film we screen is in Italian with English subtitles.
