Italian term or phrase: farlo ascoltare
Context: L'obiettivo dichiarato da Anastasio e' quello di resuscitare il codice delle vecchie "big bands", ovvero prendere un motivo e "farlo ascoltare" in diverse varianti: quello da ballo, quello per intellettuali, quello per relax e cosi' via.

I just want to make sure I am correctly understanding what the author is saying here. This is from a write-up about the group Phish.
