Described as “the odd couple” of Jazz, John Coltrane and Miles Davis came together in the recoding of the classic Kind of Blue and there went on to make his indelible mark on Jazz through his saxophone genius.

Director John Scheinfeld (best known for The US vs John Lennon and Who Is Harry Nilsson…?) turns his attention to the life and music of Coltrane and provides a dazzling portrait of this legendary saxophonist.

Combining archive footage with contributions from the likes of Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Jimmy Heath, McCoy Tyner, John Densmore, Bill Clinton, Wynton Marsalis, Cornel West, Common, Ravi Coltrane, Antonia Andrews, Lewis Porter, and Ben Ratliff, Chasing Trane offers a fascinating and compelling portrait of the musician and the man.

“What emerges in this film is not just a great artist but also a noble soul that constantly sought to be gentle. The fact that someone as wholly beautiful as John Coltrane once walked this earth is enough to make you maintain some kind of faith in humanity itself.” Rogerebert.com
