Chasing Trane - The John Coltrane Documentary


B&W and Color
158 Mins.
Region: All
Subtitles: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian Portugese

Director John Schienfeld explores the life, spiritual journey and unmistakable music of John Coltrane, whose recorded works range from deeply expressive ballads to wildly expressive "sheets of sound". Schienfeld crafts a story that reveals and affirms the impact Trane had on a variety of musicians, politicians, educators and artists - including President Bill Clinton, Common, Dr. Cornel West, etc. And because the saxophonist did few recorded interviews, the words of John Coltrane are spoken by Denzel Washington. In addition to one-of-a-kind interviews, featured in the main film are never-before-seen home movies and photographs; rare TV performances from Europe and America, including one of the few occasions when Coltrane and his classic quartet performed his masterwork, "A Love Supreme", live in concert; never-before-seen documents from Coltrane's U.S. Navy file; and much more.
