It is 3 rounds, two 110 cm and a diameter of 99 cm, narrating the history of jazz inspired by the music critic Arrigo Polillo.

So the artist Michele Bocelli describes his own works: "In these paintings speak of the origin of Jazz and then from the brothels of New Orleans, to the visions of the past ascetic jazz musicians."

Depicted in the triptych are the pillars of the jazz world the likes of Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Rollins, Ornette Coleman, Charles Mingus, Billy Holyday, Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, John Coltrane.

The paintings are intended as a general summary from the beginning until almost the present day, through the time span of the twentieth century.
