A story about a Chinese jazz band that is seen by chance in Shanghai around 1930, when people from all over the world, including Europe and the United States, were mixed and called a nightless castle. The literature, including the background and history of the project, is also full of interesting details (Only Japanese). The recording is not from that time, but it has been recorded and recreated for the release, bringing back the jazz sound. The release is on the same label as the cassette book containing the live recordings of EP-4.

1930年頃にはヨーロッパ、アメリカはじめ世界中の人々が入り混じり不夜城と言わしめられていたという上海にて偶然見かけた中国人ジャズバンドを巡る物語。その経緯や歴史を含めた文献なども興味深い内容ばかり。録音は当時のものではないですが発売に至って録音され再現されたジャズサウンドが蘇ります。リリースはEP-4のライブ音源を収録したカセットブックと同レーベルから。
