Hi Martin.......
  I have the 10" Columbia LP by Phil Zito and I will be glad to make a CD copy of it for you.  However, I cannot do it until we return from Florida in early April.  Let me know if this is OK with you and send me a snail mail address......

The above Columbia catalogue numbers are for the original 78s.
I do not have any reference to the 45s you mention, which would presumably
be singles. 
Also on a Columbia LP CL6110

Something in the back of my brain tells me that this has been discussed
previously on the DJML
Google turned up the following from The New Orleans & Louisiana Music News
"New Orleans jazz loses long time supporter: noted Dixieland jazz drummer
and band leader Philip Anthony Zito passed away on August 2nd 1998 at the
age of 84; in 1935, Phil co-founded the Original Dixieland Jazz Band &
Foundation with Nick LaRocca (of ODJB fame); "Phil Zito's New Orleans
International City Dixielanders" featured the then "youngsters" Pete
Fountain and George Girard (who both went on to form the Basin Street Six in
the early 50's); our condolences go out to Phil's family and friends."
