Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary premieres in Carbondale

Posted: Updated:

CARBONDALE -- A film series kicked off at the Carbondale Public Library Sunday, premiering Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary.

The documentary tells the story of Saxophone-great John Coltrane. It's part of a series that features local indie lens pop-up film screenings and community-driven conversation.

One of the purposes is to bring people together. 

SIU Director of Jazz Studies Dr. Rickard Kelley was there as a special guest. He called Coltrane one of the biggest figures in jazz history. 

"He's a transformative character in the jazz history," Kelley said, "so I hope that they would be able to recognize that and say, 'Alright this is a seminal figure that I want to know a little bit more about and use this as kind of a jumping off point for learning more about jazz.'"

The next screening at Carbondale Public Library will be Sunday, Nov. 19.
