Suite for a Fish Out of Water Released February 2, 1997

The release of Mark’s third album is a solid testimony to the notion that artists are not so much charting their course as they are following it. With the acoustic explorations of Veritas and the electric probings of In Spirit behind him,  Suite For a Fish Out of Water becomes the defining moment in the early period of Mark’s work.


Those who discovered this album upon its re-release have found a timeless simpatico with those who originally discovered it in 1997.  From 1984 to 1997, Mark was composing and performing in the jazz fusion genre, documenting the best of his efforts on In Spirit and Suite for a Fish Out of Water.  Mark has not returned to the electric band format making this recording a gem among his many works.
