About the album

Man Overboard are five like-minded musicians who play and listen to all sorts of music, and share a love of hot swing. Their debut album is a collection of old jazz tunes all played in Man Overboard’s infectious, melodic style. Expect to be delighted by “On the sunny side of the street,” “All of Me” and “How High the Moon.”

Man Overboard

Man Overboard brings together five like-minded musicians who play and listen to all sorts of music, but who share a love of hot swing. Thomas Gould is a classical violinist described as “staggeringly virtuosic” by The Guardian. He is also a dab hand at jazz, and his playing meets its match in the lyrical clarinet playing of Ewan Bleach, who has been making his mark on the music scenes of London and New Orleans. Thomas and Ewan work the tunes beautifully together, sometimes harmonising, sometimes challenging each other. At other times, they simply provide the setting for Louisa Jones’ distinctively husky but sweet voice. Underpinning the sound are Dave O’Brien (one of the brightest young musicians on the London swing scene)...

At other times, they simply provide the setting for Louisa Jones’ distinctively husky but sweet voice. Underpinning the sound are Dave O’Brien (one of the brightest young musicians on the London swing scene) on the double bass and Jean-Marie Fagon, a good old-fashioned, no-nonsense rhythm guitarist from France. The five musicians first started playing together in January 2011 and were quickly performing in some of London’s favourite jazz venues. They have recorded music for television, being featured in BBC3’s “Being Human” series, and cut their first album – a collection of old jazz numbers played in Man Overboard’s infectious, melodic style – for Champs Hill Records.
