Adam Kahn, Co-Director of “Sunset and the Mockingbird” joins Mark for a conversation on the feature documentary that tells the love story of legendary jazz pianist/composer Junior Mance and his manager and soul mate, Gloria Clayborne Mance. Junior has recorded over 100 albums and during his illustrious career he jammed with fellow icons including Dizzy Gillespie, Duke Ellington, Dinah Washington, Charlie Parker and hundreds more. Junior unfortunately had a stroke in 2012 which led to the onset of Alzheimer’s. Though his musical abilities were untouched, his gradual mental and physical decline has forced Gloria’s role as manager, wife to take on a whole new meaning. Hear how Co-Directors Adam Kahn and Jyllian Gunther tell the story of an incredible man and musician whose career spanned more then 70 years and contributed immensely to the jazz world. This love story of music, relationship and health is in the final stage of production though the Directors need to raise capital for the world to experience this remarkable film.
