LOS ANGELES, CALIF. (OCT. 17, 2017) — In conjunction with the home video and soundtrack release for John Scheinfeld’s acclaimed feature documentary, Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary, on Nov. 17 via UMe, the GRAMMY Museum® and Bulova will launch a new long-term exhibit titled Chasing Trane: John Coltrane’s Musical Journey Transcended. On display through Sept. 2018 in the Museum’s Mike Curb Gallery on the fourth floor, the exhibit will celebrate the music of GRAMMY®-winning saxophone great John Coltrane through rare performance footage and audio recordings from Coltrane’s Japanese tour in 1966, handwritten manuscripts, instruments, and more.
“John Coltrane is a towering figure in the history of music. We are thrilled to honor his creative legacy in conjunction with John Scheinfeld‘s superb documentary,” said GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman.
“We are excited to share the story of John Coltrane’s remarkable career, specifically the years 1965 to 1967,” said GRAMMY Museum Curator Nwaka Onwusa. “As Coltrane’s career progressed during these final years, his music took on an increasingly revolutionary dimension. This exhibit will highlight that special time in his life.”
“Bulova is proud to work alongside the GRAMMY Museum to promote thought-provoking educational and public performances,” said Robert Christiano, EVP Marketing at Bulova. “John Coltrane’s life and career was an inspiration and the exhibit is sure to highlight this.”
