Chasing Trane Press

Here is a brief smattering of comments and quotes from people who have seen the film at TIFF/to date:

— "Honestly, there is an emotional quality about your film that makes it very effective and engrossing. And it looks and sounds great!--everything is such high quality.” - Lewis Porter

— "What a beautiful and exhilarating portrait it is. I love the graphics in the opening sequence and of course I love all those interviewees – – special people like Benny Golson and Sonny Rollins as well as the higher-profile individuals who are all so eloquent. I don't know what else to say except Bravo!” - Leonard Maltin

— "Coltrane’s emotional and spiritual journey, as expressed in his music, is what Telluride and Toronto audiences are responding to strongly.” - Variety

"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 film bulges with insights offered by everyone from family members and close collaborators to the likes of Cornel West and Bill Clinton. The incessant rush of the innovator’s music should spike the interest of younger viewers insufficiently exposed to the man’s short career, pointing to an extensive life in all markets, domestic and international, wherever interest in great jazz still flourishes.”  - The Hollywood Reporter
