NOVEMBER'S 'TRANE SCHEDULE
10/5/17

This ‘Trane is bound for glory: In November, the Grammy Museum will open a John Coltrane exhibit; John Scheinfeld’s documentary will be screened at the museum, released on DVD and Blu-ray and play PBSIndependent Lens, and Verve/UMe will release the film’s soundtrack.

Here’s the breakdown in chronological order.

Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary will make its television broadcast premiere on PBS 11/6. Leading up to the premiere, there will be free preview screenings and discussion events for the film in dozens of U.S. cities.

The doc and the soundtrack will be released 11/17, the same day Chasing Trane: Coltrane’s Musical Journey Transcended opens at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles with a screening of the film that night. The exhibit will feature rare performance footage and audio recordings from Coltrane’s Japanese tour in 1966, handwritten manuscripts, instruments, and more; it will be up until September 2018.

The 11-track soundtrack—yes, it will be available on vinyl—includes live versions of “I Want to Talk About You” and “Chasin’ The Trane,” the single version of “My Favorite Things” and “A Love Supreme Part 1 – Acknowledgement.”

Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary features never-before-seen Coltrane family home movies, footage of Coltrane and his band in the studio along interviews with musicians who worked with him (Sonny Rollins, McCoy Tyner, Benny Golson, Jimmy Heath, Reggie Workman), musicians he inspired (CommonJohn Densmore, Wynton Marsalis, Carlos Santana, Wayne Shorter, Kamasi Washington), his children, biographers and people who admired him such as President Bill Clinton and Dr. Cornel West

The objective of the film was to show how Coltrane's impact reached beyond the music he played. His fierce work ethic, his dedication to family and his art, his commitment to pushing forward as a musician—they are elements of a film that explores  a legacy that's vibrant 50 years after the death of one of America's most important artists.
