Born: October 22, 1979 Primary Instrument: Sax, tenor
Mark started out playing on the Birmingham jazz and - then- embryonic, now-flourishing - improvised music scenes, working regularly in groups led by pianist Steve Tromans and altoist Chris Bowden. He was an early member of Hans Koller Ensemble, recording 2 CDs, and shortly after moving to London he co-founded the Loop Collective and became one of the busiest players on the capital's new jazz scene. He has appeared on over 30 CDs with groups including Nostalgia 77, Outhouse, Twelves, Jonathan Bratoeff Quartet and Keith Tippett. He has played at many major festivals and venues in the UK, Europe and US and has been broadcast several times on Resonance 104.4FM, BBC Radios 1 and 3, and on the internet...
