His records have been released in Europe and Japan and have included work with musicians in Cuba, and Mark has also created some very avant guarde music fusing jazz, funk, rap, classical and ambient sounds. This CD was recorded at the "Pumpkin Lounge" in Amsterdam and features original compositions and some very interesting takes on modern jazz standards such as Sonny Rollins' "Oleo" and Ornette Coleman's "Blues Connotations."
