“Soulful and exuberant” (Time Out) vocalist Mark Jennett has been a regular on the London jazz scene for several years with appearances at Ronnie Scotts, the Vortex (“regulars lapped it up” – Evening Standard) and other leading venues. He has performed throughout the UK with his own trio, as well as making appearances with a number of big bands and performs regularly with fellow singer Carol Grimes.

Mark's second album Everybody Says Don’t (Jazzizit Records), produced by Geoff Gascoyne, is a set of sophisticated reinterpretations of 20th century standards from writers as diverse as Cole Porter and Randy Newman. It is due for release in September 2014.

Mark's first CD, The Way I Am, was warmly received by the critics.

“A bright debut… He delivers on a convincing set of standards with his supple turn of phrase.” - Jazzwise

“These songs have seldom received more sensitive treatments, their every word made to count, their every internal rhyme subtly emphasised, their wry humour and wit skilfully drawn from them.” - Chris Parker, Vortex Jazz

Mark also teaches singing technique, has led workshops with college students and adults and worked with groups with Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.
