Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary
Blog Name: Home Page NewsAuthor: Natasha Collins , Development DirectorPosted on: June 13, 2017
Jazz 88.3 is proud to support Ken Theater's presentation of "Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary" showing THIS(!) Saturday, June 24th. You won't want to miss this thought-provoking, uplifting and powerful film about jazz giant John Coltrane, an outside-the-box thinker whose boundary-shattering music continues to impact and influence people around the world. This rich, textured and compelling portrait of a remarkable artist reveals the critical events, passions, experiences and challenges that shaped his life and revolutionary sounds—a story of demons and darkness, of persistence and redemption. The beauty, poignancy, energy, pain, joy and inspiration heard in nearly 50 Coltrane recordings from throughout his career brings alive the artist and the times in which he lived. Although Coltrane never participated in any television interviews (and only a handful for radio), he has an active and vibrant presence in the film through his print interviews. These words—spoken by Academy Award winner Denzel Washington—illuminate what Coltrane was thinking and feeling at critical moments throughout his life and career. Includes appearances by Coltrane’s children, President Bill Clinton, Common, John Densmore of The Doors, Wynton Marsalis, Sonny Rollins, Carlos Santana, Wayne Shorter, Dr. Cornel West and more. You also won't want to miss a special Q&A session with Jazz 88.3's GM, Ken Poston and director, John Scheinfeld after the 7PM show. Showtimes vary--click here for details!
