At first told he was raised by gypsies, later found it was wolves, Mark discovered jazz by way of Raymond Scott and Carl Stalling's music for Warner Brothers' cartoons. Early on he wondered why the saxophone solos on Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon and Van Morrison's Moondance were so bad. “You're a jazz critic, that's why” a friendly drifter told him. Mark packed his bags and waited for a passenger train to the Big Apple, only to find the train station boarded up. He's lived in Ohio ever since.
