?After the chaos and destruction of World War II and the conservative musical environment Italian leaders promoted, the Italian public was ready for a more relaxed sound. Jazz, swing and boogie-woogie were achieving worldwide popularity and, in Italy, merged with the Italian crooner tradition. The musical rebirth of the 1950s and ?60s was like a second liberation. What?s old is new and Putumayo?s June 21, 2005 release Italian Café captures the music and attitude from that era and from current singers whose musical DNA follows that lineage. The CD follows Putumayo?s successful French Café collection.

?The collection features instructions to make a coffee drink by Italian coffee company Illy and extensive liner notes in English, Italian, Spanish and French. A portion of the proceeds from this album will be donated to Terres des Hommes, a Swiss based non-profit, dedicated to improving the lives of children around the world. ?
