Mark Norton is a highly talented saxophonist and has played in many top soul, jazz, funk and blues bands over the years. He is best known as the front man of The Gene Drayton Unit (GDU). As well as playing saxophone, Mark also plays the flute and blues harp and writes music.
Mark began collecting jazz and soul records in the early 80s and calculates that since then, he has probably spent more money on records than on food (at one time he had an album-a-day habit).
Despite playing live all over the world, Mark still finds time to look for records and occasionally DJs at venues in London, such as The South London Pacific Tiki bar. He has DJ'd for us at Right On!, Looking Good and Home Cookin', doing a fantatic job of warming up the dancefloor with his selection of mod jazz, r&b and more.
Mark also plays in Freestyle Records-signed band, The Fantastics! You can buy their albums on Amazon here:
