Los Angeles, CA, September 16, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Visionary Cinema presents the new short film "Trane and Miles." Witness John Coltrane and Miles Davis creating their most popular work in the midst of the Civil Rights Movement, the birth of Rock ‘N’ Roll, and the popularity of television. The film embodies the sound of cool jazz, featuring an original score by James Linahon and The North Atlantic Jazz Alliance.

"Trane and Miles" is the timeless story of two of the most prolific jazz musicians’ magnetic collaboration. In April of 1959, they progressed beyond the traditional approaches to jazz and, in doing so, revolutionized an era.
