Chasing Trane
« on: November 02, 2017, 10:51:28 AM »
A movie about John Coltrane.  http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/films/chasing-trane/

It's been in theaters since April 2017. Plays on TV this Monday, November 6 on PBS stations.

A radio interview with the writer director:

As a PBS show, I expect the usual modern "jazz master" biography formula, focusing on his "personal challenges" from the POV of contemporary political correctness. Sprinkled with gems of pure wisdom from Wynton Marsala and mostly devoid of his true musical accomplishments. It will be all "Love Supreme," and no "Freddie Freeloader," (his greatest recorded solo.)
