About The Film
Coltrane’s incredible story is told by the musicians who worked with him (Sonny Rollins, McCoy Tyner, Benny Golson, Jimmy Heath, Reggie Workman), musicians inspired by his fearless artistry and creative vision (Common, John Densmore, Wynton Marsalis, Carlos Santana, Wayne Shorter, Kamasi Washington), Coltrane’s children and biographers, and well-known admirers such as President Bill Clinton and Dr. Cornel West.

We would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Richard Kelley, Associate Professor, Saxophone and Director of Jazz Studies & Undergraduate Studies at the SIU School of Music for serving as the discussion moderator for this event.
