Iconic Jazz saxophonist John Coltrane’s forthcoming documentary Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary has been in the making for some time now, but will finally be seeing the light of day. Narrated by Denzel Washington, it will also feature commentary from former president Bill Clinton and guitarist Carlos Santana.
Chasing Coltrane will be debuting at this year’s Toronto Film Festival.
“Revolutionary artist and innovator, John Coltrane expanded the frontiers of his craft by introducing elements from musical traditions the world over. Chasing Trane reveals the critical events, passions, experiences, and challenges that shaped the life of John Coltrane and his revolutionary sounds. It is a story of demons and darkness, of persistence and redemption. Above all else, it is the incredible spiritual journey of a man who found himself and, in the process, created an extraordinary body of work that transcends all barriers of geography, race, religion and age.”
