Biodoc celebration of the life and lasting influence of jazz saxophone “Heavyweight Champion” John Coltrane (1926-1967) suffers a slight bit from the scarcity of film/video footage of the musician in performance, but the stellar taking heads singing his praises – Wayne Shorter, McCoy Tyner, Sonny Rollins, Carlos Santana, Bill Clinton, Wynton Marsalis, Benny Golson, Trane’s son Ravi Coltrane, et al. – take up plenty of the slack. Writer-director John Scheinfeld stresses the spiritual aspect of Coltrane’s playing, and there are copious audio samples of his work. A fine introduction to the Coltrane mystique (99 min., 2016, not rated) (K.V.)
