Veteran documentarian John Scheinfeld explores the life and work of jazz legend John Coltrane, with commentary and appreciations from such diverse Trane devotees as Carlos Santana, Sonny Rollins and Bill Clinton.
Saxophonist, composer, and tireless innovator, John Coltrane expanded the frontiers of the jazz idiom, introducing elements from musical traditions the world over. His magnum opus, the alternately sombre and raucous “A Love Supreme”, is among the most haunting statements of spiritual devotion ever committed to tape. That Coltrane accomplished everything he did before his death at age 40 is at once heartbreaking and inspiring.
From his childhood in the Jim Crow South to his hallowed tenure with Miles Davis — which pushed Coltrane to conquer his heroin addiction — to his triumphant run as leader of one of jazz's most fiery and revered quartets, Chasing Trane digs deep, chronicling a story of harrowing lows and interstellar highs.
Scheinfeld makes inspired use of archival materials, animated murals, readings of Coltrane's own words by Denzel Washington, and a wealth of new interviews. There are moments when the interviewess fall speechless, reminding us that such powerful music touches something in us that is beyond words.
