about

American Gypsy is Mark's CD of original acoustic guitar solo pieces. The diversity of these pieces represents his many musical influences which include the Dave Brubeck quartet's experiments with time ("Night"), J. S Bach and baroque dance forms ("Sarabande"), Michael Hedges and ambient music ("Cathedral") and contemporary folk ("Hope" and "I'll Not Be Weary"). Mark's distinctive compositional and playing styles come across when he blends these various influences in pieces such as "Caravan," "Dance of the Misfits" and "American Gypsy," the three-part title-track.
