Description
The high points of the career of this peerless musician are all here, along with commentary from colleagues like Wayne Shorter, who observed that "he played the saxophone more like a piano or even a violin."

"Coltrane came out of the bebop school but by the mid 1950s was already looking for ways to expand its, and his, musical vocabulary. His solution was to improvise for long stretches of time on one or two chords, exploring and exploding the music into ever-denser shards of notes…. The video clips used in this film are phenomenal, eye- and ear-popping, and extremely rare…. There are two excerpts from an open-air live concert in Scandinavia, including a performance of 'My Favorite Things,' where the weather was so cold that you could see the musicians' breath…. Coltrane was a genius whose body of work still awes and inspires musicians, and a lot of them are not jazz players."—Fanfare

"Like Charles Mingus and Dizzy Gillespie (and many others), Coltrane initially emulated the bebop progenitor Charlie Parker and listened to western classical music, especially the work of Stravinsky….The footage, albeit awfully brief, of Miles' solo casually sliding into Trane's on 'So What' is a bit more than simply historic: we didn't get to see Notre Dame being built or the Statue of David being sculpted, but we do have the opportunity to witness some of the most brilliant musicians on the planet performing one of our best-loved albums."—Pop Matters
