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 February "e-78" features on the virtual "A" side, an intriguing tune with a tango feel and a sentimental melody, "Morocco Blues."  Written by Joe Jordan, one of the earliest American jazz musicians to come over to the U.K., it features the Five's pianist, Andrew Oliver in a tango section followed by some mellow and bluesy improvisations from Michael McQuaid on clarinet.  The "B" side features a very hot number, "High Fever," written by pianist Joe Sanders and recorded by many great bands of the 1920s.  This one features a plethora of instrument switching from David Horniblow and Michael McQuaid, culminating in an exciting blues chorus with hot Freddie Keppard-style cornet by McQuaid!
