New Short Film "Trane and Miles" Celebrates Jazz Music Legends

Sep 16 2013, 8:01am CDT | by PR.com

Take a journey to 1959 and walk the miles with two of the most iconic jazz musicians of all time, men whose work became the soundtrack of an era. Writer-director Scott Essman of Visionary Cinema captures the brilliant, untold story of John Coltrane and Miles Davis, starring Ricco Ross as Coltrane and Travis Hinson as Davis. Their impact came at the outset of significant changes in all things America.

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. Witness the birth of “cool jazz” with the making of Kind of Blue, the best-selling jazz album in history, seeing how it was made and who was behind it. The influential Miles Davis takes the audience through his and Coltrane’s struggle to keep jazz alive through this transformative period, paving the way for new diverse forms of musical expression.

Note: DVD screeners and digital downloads are available upon request. Actors Ross and Hinson plus writer-director Essman and musical director Linahon are available for interviews. High-resolution art, logos, packaging and multimedia materials are available for both print and web as are the original digital master music files created for the film.
