In this excerpt from the Independent Lens documentary Chasing Trane, legendary jazz saxophonist John Coltrane is brought to life—with his words spoken by Denzel Washington—in the period of artistic flourishing shortly after he'd become clean and sober. Here, Coltrane collaborates with the brilliant composer/pianist Thelonious Monk and then ventures out on his own as a jazz leader.
