UK based saxophonist Mark Buckley began to play the saxophone at the age of 9, after being inspired by a certain cool, green character named Zoot (!). After a couple of years playing with MYJO and becoming familiar with many of the saxophone greats, a teacher introduced him to a record that would change his life forever. The disc was ‘Voyeur', and the unmistakable sound of David Sanborn filled his soul, fuelling his desire to play professionally. Having obtained all ABRSM grades, his early training was with Paul Harvey. Mark then went on to gain a diploma from the ABRSM in Saxophone Music Performance.
