about

The Vitality Five and V.E.A.C. Phonograph Co. present a new series of monthly "e-78" releases which harks back to the custom of releasing music on double-sided 78rpm shellac records.

The inagural “e-78” features two stylistically varied selections. “31st St. Blues,” originally recorded by the very obscure Oliver Naylor Orchestra, features McQuaid on cornet, leading a new take on one of the many 1920s blues tunes which transforms the more traditional boundaries of the blues form and through many twists and turns into a unique and hard grooving stomp.  In addition to McQuaid’s searing cornet work, the track features great solos from Oliver and Wheatley. “Three Blind Mice,” made famous in a recording by the great Bix Beiderbecke, features the band in a more cerebral mode, interpreting a tricky tune with an emphasis on group interaction and subtle movements between sections, with standout bass saxophone work by Horniblow.
