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.  Please view the “Sunset and the Mockingbird” trailer and consider contributing.  Donor gifts are offered including tours of the PRN NYC studios for donations of $100 and greater: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sunsetmockingbird/sunset-and-the-mockingbird     

Calvin Schwartz is a giant on many levels.  As a writer, his effortless ability to inform entertain and muse is as natural as his whole-hearted smile that he shares with audiences as a tv and radio host.  Calvin’s passion to mentor has afforded students education through his business acumen and desire to assist students reach their goals despite financial hurdles.  A person with such enormous heart and soul requires a 6’5’ frame, and yes his Rutgers hat is permanently affixed.

“Mark Farrell presented at our school during The Week of Respect. The students were captivated by his motivating message on perseverance, diversity, and anti-bullying. Our students remained engaged throughout his presentation as he has perfected speaking to students at their developmental level. Mark was flexible to work with and was able to engage with students on a large array of topics. My students greatly benefited from hearing the message that with hard work, diligence, and never giving up on yourself, your dreams can become your reality. I would highly recommend Mark Farrell to any school looking for a highly motivating speaker”
