The world is still catching up with the genius of legendary jazz musician John Coltrane. A visionary who transformed the world of music by pushing the very boundaries of the genre, he was able to transcend barriers as a commercial artist who created revolutionary sounds. The soft-spoken Coltrane rarely did any radio interviews, but here Academy Award–winner Denzel Washington brings his words to life through readings and reflections from Bill Clinton, Sonny Rollins, Wynton Marsalis, Common, Cornel West and more. A man who fought his demons and found redemption through faith, Chasing Trane is a human portrait that illuminates the story of one of the 20th century’s foremost artists.
