In 1992 Mark formed the eclectic co-led quartet Perfect Houseplants, a group that released six albums and collaborated with classical artists such as the Orlando Consort, Andrew Manze and Pamela Thorby. He has since recorded and performed with many jazz, folk and pop artists, including: Django Bates, Kenny Wheeler, Norma Winstone Radiohead and many more.
