Event description

Description

Set against the social, political and cultural landscape of the times, Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary brings saxophone great John Coltrane to life, as a man and an artist. Written and directed by John Scheinfeld, Chasing Trane is the definitive look at the boundary-shattering musician whose influence continues to this day.

Chasing Trane features never-before-seen Coltrane family home movies, footage of Coltrane and his band in the studio (discovered in a California garage during production of this film), along with hundreds of rare photographs and rare television appearances from around the world. Coltrane’s incredible story is told by the musicians who worked with him (Sonny Rollins, McCoy Tyner, Benny Golson, Jimmy Heath, Reggie Workman), musicians inspired by his fearless artistry and creative vision (Common, John Densmore, Wynton Marsalis, Carlos Santana, Wayne Shorter, Kamasi Washington), Coltrane’s children and biographers, and well-known admirers such as President Bill Clinton and Dr. Cornel West.
