In conjunction with the home video and soundtrack releases 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. The Museum will celebrate the opening of the exhibit with a special screening of the documentary followed by an intimate conversation with director John Scheinfeld, moderated by Executive Director Scott Goldman. Attendees will have the opportunity to view the exhibit from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary features never-before-seen Coltrane family home movies, footage of Coltrane and his band in the studio (discovered in a California garage during production of the film), along with hundreds of never-before-seen photographs and rare television appearances from around the world. The smart, passionate, thought-provoking and uplifting film reveals the critical events, passions, experience, and challenges that shaped Coltrane’s life and his revolutionary sounds. It is a story of demons and darkness, of persistence and redemption. Above all, it is the incredible spiritual journey of a man who found himself and, in the process, created an extraordinary, iconic body of work that transcends all barriers of geography, race, religion and age. Although Coltrane did not participate in any television interviews and he recorded only a handful of radio interviews during his lifetime, he is an active and vibrant presence throughout the film, in his remarkable performance clips and in thoughts he expressed during print interviews. In Chasing Trane, the words of John Coltrane are spoken by Denzel Washington.

The GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to host a special screening of Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked The World, followed by an intimate conversation with Executive Producers Stevie Salas, Christina Fon, and Director Catherine Bainbridge, and special guest artists, who also appear in the film, Taboo (Black Eyed Peas), Elliot Easton (The Cars), and Wayne Kramer (MC5). The evening will be hosted by GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman.

Many artists and musical forms played a role in the creation of rock, but arguably no single piece of music was more influential than the 1958 instrumental “Rumble” by American Indian rock guitarist and singer/songwriter Link Wray. When recalling Wray’s shivering guitar classic, “Rumble,” Martin Scorsese marvels, “It is the sound of that guitar . . . that aggression.” "Rumble" was the first song to use distortion and feedback. It introduced the rock power chord -– and was one of the very few instrumental singles to be banned from the radio for fear it would incite violence. Sundance Film Festival winner Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked The World explores how the Native American influence is an integral part of music history, despite attempts to ban, censor, and erase Indian culture in the United States. As the film reveals, the early pioneers of the blues had Native as well as African-American roots, and one of the first and most influential jazz singers’ voices was trained on Native American songs. Father of the Delta Blues Charley Patton, influential jazz singer Mildred Bailey, metaphysical guitar wizard Jimi Hendrix, and folk heroine Buffy Sainte-Marie are among the many music greats who have Native American heritage and have made their distinctive mark on music history. The stories of these iconic Native musicians are told by some of America’s greatest music legends who knew them, played music with them, and were inspired by them: everyone from Buddy Guy, Quincy Jones, and Tony Bennett to Iggy Pop, Steven Tyler, and Stevie Van Zandt. Rumble shows how Indigenous music was part of the very fabric of American popular music from the beginning, but that the Native American contribution was left out of the story – until now.
