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.
Mark’s first album, 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
