Denzel Washington, Common, Kamasi Washington, Bill Clinton, and more appear in the film



A new trailer has been released for a forthcoming documentary about John Coltrane, titled Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane StoryWatch it below via Vanity Fair. Combining archival footage, photographs and performances, the film tells the story of the jazz musician's short but powerful life. Since Coltrane gave minimal radio interviews and never gave a television interview before he died at age 40, Denzel Washington narrates his words. “In many of his roles Denzel radiates an exceptional quiet strength,” said director-writer John Scheinfeld in a statement. "Coltrane, many of his friends told me, embodied a similar strength.”

The documentary also features Common, Kamasi Washington, Carlos Santana, Wynton Marsalis, Bill Clinton, Sonny Rollins, Dr. Cornel West, and more, who discuss Coltrane's significance and impact. His family and the labels that own his catalogue all lent their support to the film's production. 

Chasing Trane will be screening at the IFC Theater in New York City beginning April 14 with a wider release to follow.
