Italian Cafe

Classic and contemporary Italian songs that will transport you to the romantic cafes of Rome, Milan and Venice

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 Italian Café captures the music and attitude from that era and from current singers whose musical DNA follows that lineage.
