The project is the result of a meeting between the "Restaurant Man" and La Terza Classe, which he met during the "On the road" programme made for Sky Arte in 2013 and hosted by Bastianich himself.

Joe's great passion for American rock, blues, soul and folk music and the immediate empathy that was created gave rise to a collaboration between him and the Neapolitan band, one of the few Italian musical entities that has been researching and composing music inspired by American folk music since its inception.

The artistic partnership between the two projects became concrete in 2021 thanks to the collaboration with the booking agency Barley Arts, which organised a summer tour and a winter tour around the boot in some of Italy's most important venues, and the release, in December 2021, of a single, 'This Good Man', written by Joe and arranged in a bluegrass version by La Terza Classe.
