“The genius of John Coltrane comes to life in an elegantly crafted documentary that can hook jazz novices as well as connoisseurs.” Variety

Chasing Trane is a sweeping biography of the jazz titan and free thinker whose boundary- shattering, otherworldly music continues to influence music fans and artists around the world. Director John Scheinfeld (The U.S. vs. John Lennon) creates a rich and compelling narrative, moving from Coltrane’s roots through his work with Miles Davis, his legendary album A Love Supreme, his addictions and his spiritual awakenings. Denzel Washington provides the film’s narration, taking on the voice of Coltrane himself, whilst insightful commentary and cameos come from Sonny Rollins, Cornell West, MC Common, McCoy Tyner, Carlos Santana, Kamasi Washington, Yasuhiro Fukioka, Michelle & Ravi Coltrane and others. Set against the social, political and cultural upheaval of the mid-20th century, Chasing Trane brings its subject to life as a multidimensional being, inviting the audience to engage with Coltrane the man as well as Coltrane the visionary.
