    She signs with Columbia/His Master's Voice and Lelio Luttazzi follows her there. Her best records are from this time in her career, among them two of her favourites: "Jula in jazz No.1" with Lelio Luttazzi and "Jula in jazz No.2" with Franco Cerri. Some of the best italian jazz soloists accompany her in these two 45XP.

    Jula de Palma is already a very strong and innovative presence in the italian entertainment world, not only for her style and for the choice of her repertoire, but also because she has veered away from the easy line of the popular traditional song. She will remain consistent to her own musical preference when invited in 1955, for the first time, to the famous Festival della Canzone Italiana in Sanremo, at the time, the "temple" of the traditional song.

    Jula introduces four songs, a blues and three slows, which she performs with her great sensuality, her style of great vocalist and her belief in the new, modern wave of composers. She has no hope of winning and she doesn't. But she has great success with the audience and the critics, particularly with the blues song, "L'ombra".

    Jula will never win the Festival of Italian Song in Sanremo, but she will always be among its protagonists, taking part in another four Festivals with songs written by young and modern musicians and paving the way for the new wave of italian songs.

    She will appear very frequently on italian TV in popular shows like "Buone vacanze", " Piccolo concerto" "Studio Uno" "Milleluci" etc.. In 1956, Jula will be the leading lady, with Ugo Tognazzi and Raimondo Vianello, of the musical comedy "Campione senza volere" by Scarnicci e Tarabusi with music by Lelio Luttazzi, touring Italy for almost a year.
