John coltrane coltrane in tokyo vol 1 - John Coltrane - The Official Site

Written and directed by John Scheinfeld ( The . vs. John Lennon ; Who Is Harry Nilsson, and Why Is Everybody Talkin’ About Him? ), Chasing Trane tells the story of the saxophone great through rare and unreleased video and photographs, as well as extensive interviews with Coltrane collaborators, admirers and family members. In addition to Densmore, those featured in the film include Common, Carlos Santana, Sonny Rollins, Kamasi Washington, Bill Clinton and Dr. Cornel West, as well as Coltrane's children Ravi and Oran. Fully authorized by the Coltrane estate, Chasing Trane also includes music from throughout the saxophonist's career. Denzel Washington provides narration drawn from Coltrane interviews.

Throughout, Tyner's presence is unusually muted; he takes his only solo on the bonus track, " Dear Old Stockholm ", is barely audible on the two Village Vanguard tracks, and lays out entirely on "Up 'Gainst the Wall". Also, drummer Roy Haynes —as he sometimes did for Coltrane's group during this era—replaces Elvin Jones on "After the Rain" and "Dear Old Stockholm" (which were each recorded at the same April 1963 studio session). Jones and Garrison are also uncharacteristically low-key. All told, and even more so than on his other albums, the focus on this LP is on Coltrane. The title track is notable for featuring nearly fifteen minutes of Coltrane's soloing.
