How Do You Say That?
Go ahead and listen. This guy has a warm voice, delivers a lyric well, and is playing with some fine musicians. The selection of songs includes great tunes, some of which you don't hear often enough. He's not the second coming of Frank, Mel, or Joe, he has his own sound, but if you like the sound of a classic jazz singer who can swing, give him a listen, you'll probably like him. Catch Mark at the Vermont Jazz Center in Brattleboro where he is a regular at the Wednesday night jams, and sings with the VJC Big Band. A new recording featuring several duets with Montreal singer Mary Ann Lacey, pianist Eugene Uman, and German guitar virtuoso Helmut Kagerer is in the works, stay tuned! UPDATE: Mark is singing and playing guitar with the Butterfly Swing Band, playing classic tunes in the southern Vermont area.
