“I’m producing a feature documentary about the love story of legendary jazz pianist Junior Mance and his wife and manager, Gloria Clayborne Mance. The film is co-directed by Jyllian Gunther and Adam Kahan. Junior suffered a stroke in 2012, which led to the onset of dementia. Though his musical abilities were untouched, his mental and physical decline has forced Gloria’s role to take on a whole new meaning. She is tasked with winding down Junior’s legendary career as he looses his identity—while still, somehow, maintaining her own. Today we’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funding to bring on an editor to help us tell this important story, so we’re trying to get the word out about the film.”
