Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary

“Midway through Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary, John Scheinfeld’s elegantly crafted and illuminating portrait of the singular jazz legend, John Densmore, of the Doors, talks about “Kind of Blue,” the touchstone 1959 Miles Davis album on which Coltrane was a pivotal player. Densmore calls it an album that transcends categories, one that even people who don’t “get” jazz can respond to. And he’s right. Chasing Trane is a film that might have been made for them. Not because it’s “Coltrane for Dummies” — its grasp of Coltrane’s genius is direct and organic — but because it builds what John Coltrane did from the ground up, leading us through the mystery of his lyric celestial saxophone wail, and how it emerged from the complex person he was.

“Chasing Trane is a seductive piece of documentary filmmaking; it gives you the basics, but beautifully. You could walk into this movie knowing nothing about Coltrane and walk out an impassioned convert.” - Variety
