This rich compelling portrait of a remarkable artist reveals the critical events, passions, experiences and challenges that shaped the life of John Coltrane and his revolutionary music. Directed by John Scheinfeld (“The U.S. vs. John Lennon”, “Who is Harry Nilsson [And Why Is Everybody Talkin’ About Him”]), it is a story of demons and darkness, of persistence and redemption. It is the journey of a spiritual warrior who found himself, found God, and in the process, created an extraordinary body of work that transcends barriers of race, religion, age and geography. Denzel Washington, the voice of John Coltrane in the film, illuminates what Coltrane was thinking and feeling at critical moments throughout his life and career drawing upon the few interviews Coltrane gave.

 

In addition to interviews with family members, Scheinfeld captures a rich picture of Coltrane through insightful commentary from a stellar group that includes Bill Clinton, Cornel West, Carlos Santana, Benny Golson, Jimmy Heath, Wynton Marsalis, Reggie Workman, Sonny Rollins, Kamasi Washington and others.

Set against the social, political and cultural landscape of the times, Chasing Trane brings Coltrane to life as a fully dimensional being, inviting the audience to engage with Coltrane the man, Coltrane the artist, and one of the nation’s most influential artists and composers of the last century.

 

More than any other jazz great, John Coltrane’s influence cuts across music genres and generations. From rock to rap — the Doors to the Grateful Dead, hip-hop’s Common to Kendrick Lamar – Coltrane’s impact was profound and continues.

 

 

The Coltrane Home in Dix Hills (featured prominently in the film), where John spent his last years with Alice Coltrane – a music master and pioneer in her own right — and their young family, is now a national historic site only minutes away from the Cinema Arts Centre. It is where John Coltrane composed his opus work, “A Love Supreme”. Once open as a museum and cultural center, The John and Alice Coltrane Home will be a magnet for fans and followers, all around the globe, bringing music lovers and visitors to this jewel of the region. It will serve as a beacon for those who open their hearts and souls to the music that John and Alice openly gave the world. Support this treasure by joining us for this emotionally-powerful documentary film about an extraordinary talent whose music continues to influence people around the world.

 

 

The mission of Cinema Arts Centre is to bring the best in cinematic artistry to Long Island, and use the power of film to expand the awareness and consciousness of our community.
