Synopsis

Jazz lovers, beware - this is one rabbit hole you might not ever emerge from!

This exhaustive documentary is brimming with fabulous, never-before-seen archival photographs and filmed appearances, delicious stories and fantastic sounds from and about the saxophone genius of jazz legend Robert Coltrane.

From his very first recording as part of a US Navy band stationed at Pearl Harbor in 1946, the film sets sail through Coltrane’s entire life and career, paying homage to his musical genius while charting a course through the enormous social change happening during his times.

Along the way we’re treated to first-hand stories of Coltrane and his contemporaries - including the Miles Davis Quintet - and his family and friends. Here it’s no surprise that Denzel Washington supplies the voice to the great man’s personal writings and written interviews.

Whether you’re a jazz obsessive, a casual fan or a philistine, there’s many a reward in just looking at the archival material and photographs. There’s so much cool stuff bubbling away just beneath the surface of this one-of-a-kind jazz pioneer, so get on board the Trane!
