Adam Marks Death – Dead, Obituary, Funeral, Cause Of Death, Passed Away: “i’m incredibly saddened to hear about the sudden passing of my colleague, friend, and neighbor, Adam Marks. i’ve known adam since waaaaayyyy back in my undergrad days when he was a kick-ass grad student who seemed to have figured out all of the stuff that i couldn’t quite put together and he had me just totally dazzled. in the intervening 20 years, adam has been a great colleague and a wonderful neighbor — always willing to lend a hand with my local political agitating and, more importantly, to invest positive energy in his friends and community. the last time time i saw adam in person, we were out in the streets marching together for black lives. the last time i talked to him, he was endearingly nagging me to buy a helmet since i am suddenly a biker now that citibikes has expanded into our neighborhood. we were supposed to chat this week because he promised to help me out with a recent grant i got to diversify the repertoire of a music library and he said he had lots of research done already that he would be happy to share. adam was a ray of positive light. i will miss him, and the music community and our neighborhood will be a little less kind without him. his memory is a blessing”

heartbroken by the loss of one of my best friends, adam marks. he was my go-to for everything — play-throughs, counseling, beach trips, nature walks, concertgoing, last minute hangs, program collaborations. he was an impossibly genuine and kind person, an incredible musician and selfless advocate, and the most generous, graceful friend anyone could ask for. we saw each other last monday for a nighttime walk through central park, sitting at bethesda fountain as a dance class took place to the left and a guitarist played in the underpass before us. we agreed that it was perfect. we got some chinese food but were still hungry, so then went to gray’s papaya, standing outside in the rain. he took a bite, smiled at me and said: “wow that is a terrible hot dog… and i love it.” we walked to columbus circle and i’m grateful that when we hugged goodnight i said i loved him. on saturday he reached out, completely unprovoked, to check in on me—it’s been a tough couple of weeks, and that’s just his way. that was our last exchange. the memories—a lot of memories—and tears will keep coming. i’ve never lost so close a friend. love you, adam.
It is with the deepest sadness that I share the news that Adam Marks died Saturday morning in his sleep. I can think of no more fitting tribute than his last performance for Jacaranda 2/2/20, which was our last concert before the pandemic. Adam made a specialty of combining spoken word with piano. Philip Glass ran into Alan Ginsburg in a NY bookstore and a 1988 recorded duet was the result. Ginsburg’s passionate poem “Wichita Vortex Sutra” is devastatingly poignant now that we know there will be no more from Adam. This solo version is now a performance for the ages.
