Looks amazing! Can't wait for it to come out on home video.

Bill Clinton, Cornell West...I'll wait for reactions from those whose opinions I value more than those two, in relation to Coltrane.

I DVR'd it on PBS last week.

Me too. A friend told me a few minutes were edited out, but that's okay. I liked it a lot.

Wynton and Santana were both embarrassing.  Their segments were too long to suffer through but too short to fast forward over.  Otherwise, this was really good.

As much as I dig Santana albums like "Lotus", he doesn't bring much of value when talking about jazz much.  I saw it back on Netflix and enjoyed it.

I watched it on Netflix over the weekend, and overall I really liked it. Could have done without Santana,  but at least we didn't have to suffer through Stanley Crouch! There were several moments that really touched me emotionally, and I was impressed with all the home movies and concert footage, some of which I hadn't seen.

I agree that Santana’s statements could have been left out of the documentary, but, on the other hand, Santana has for more than a decade told people about John Coltrane.  Today there probably are some people who have listened to Coltrane at least once simply because they heard Santana mention Coltrane.  Every few years there seems to be less people who listen to jazz, and anyone who can motivate people to listen to jazz (and Coltrane) is ok with me.

Yes, definitely,I see your point and that's true Santana has always talked about Trane. It's a good thing to get new listeners into the music, always a plus.  I always wondered with an album like "Supernatural"(which I never really dug and that last track, with it's rubato kind of opening sort of reminiscent of Trane if some people who heard that became curious and they went back and checked him out.

Only time I saw Santana perform he was wearing a Coltrane T-shirt.

I just finished watching it and thought it was fantastic.  I thought all the contributors were great — you could see he affected their lives in some way — but particularly enjoyed John Densmore and Cornel West (especially the part where he confessed he didn’t understand everything Trane was doing; I can relate to that). I plan to watch it again.
