FROM THE CRITICS
Critic Todd McCarthy of The Hollywood Reporter says: “A music titan gets his cinematic due in ‘Chasing Trane,’ a comprehensive, engrossing and, it’s tempting to say, worshipful account of the life of John Coltrane, the alto sax player and composer most aficionados would agree deserves a spot on the jazz equivalent of Mount Rushmore.”

Board member Rubén Casas makes the case that Coltrane’s activism can be accessed through the social context of his jazz. Also, board member Jefferson Beavers conducts a video interview with local DJ Conor Miles where they talk about their favorite Trane records.
