A native of the north-east before making the big jump to London, Mark Youll has been a regular contributor to Jazz Journal since late 2017. Previous to this he has written for such sites and publications as Jazzwise, All About Jazz, Disorder, Louder Than War and The Quietus. As a drummer for close to 30 years, Mark has also kept himself busy (for the last five) penning pieces for various drum magazines both in the UK (Rhythm, Drummer) and in the U.S (Drumhead, Drum! ) where he has been honoured with the opportunity of interviewing players such as Steve Gadd, Dave Weckl, Nate Smith, Harvey Mason, Mark Mondesir and Billy Cobham amongst others. Mark has an ambition to write a book on Vince Guaraldi.
