The definitive look at the boundary-shattering musician whose influence continues to this day.

Set against the social, political and cultural landscape of the times, Chasing Trane brings saxophone great John Coltrane to life, as a man and an artist. The film is the definitive look at the boundary-shattering musician whose influence continues to this day. Chasing Trane features never-before-seen Coltrane family home movies, footage of Coltrane and his band in the studio (discovered in a California garage during the production of this film), along with hundreds of rare photographs and television appearances from around the world. Coltrane’s incredible story is told by the musicians who worked with him, musicians inspired by his fearless artistry and creative vision, Coltrane’s children and biographers, and well-known admirers such as President Bill Clinton and Dr Cornel West.
