'Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary'

pray for victim of Atomic Bomb Nagasaki 66-0714AB










Film Review | TIFF 2016
http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/review/chasing-trane-john-coltrane-documentary-928451

Director John Scheinfeld's doc is a comprehensive, engrossing and, it’s tempting to say, worshipful account of the life of the music titan.

A music titan gets his cinematic due in Chasing Trane, a comprehensive, engrossing and, it’s tempting to say, worshipful account of the life of John Coltrane, the alto sax player and composer most aficionados would agree deserves a spot on the jazz equivalent of Mount Rushmore. Smartly shaped and vigorously told by prolific documentarian John Scheinfeld (Who Is Harry Nilsson, The U.S. vs. John Lennon), the film bulges with insights offered by everyone from family members and close collaborators to the likes of Cornel West and Bill Clinton. The incessant rush of the innovator’s music should spike the interest of younger viewers insufficiently exposed to the man’s short career, pointing to an extensive life in all markets, domestic and international, wherever interest in great jazz still flourishes.

Although Coltrane died very young, at 40, in 1967 of liver cancer, his life nonetheless described a significant exploratory arc driven by an accelerating need to go ever-further to the outer reaches of musical expression. “He kind of did everything Picasso did, in about 50 years less time,” the sax-playing former president observes, and the film offer sufficient samples from Coltrane's different phases to back up the statement.

After establishing the man’s importance via clips of him playing in Miles Davis’ seminal quintet in 1957, a period marked by a destructive excess of booze and heroin, Scheinfeld does the best he can with minimal material to document Coltrane’s impoverished early years in North Carolina and, by age 7, Philadelphia. He served in the Navy during WWII, met Charlie Parker, played all the time and hit the big leagues when he was invited to join Dizzy Gillespie’s band. Eventually, Coltrane ran afoul of Dizzy’s strict no-drugs policy, eventually saving himself by holing up alone and enduring a painful withdrawal by going cold turkey.

When he came out the other end, he obviously didn’t know he only had a decade left to do his life’s work, but even if he had known he couldn’t have been more prolific. He played with Thelonius Monk’s band, then rejoined Davis on the epochal Kind of Blue in 1959. Forming his own quartet the following year, he had enormous successes with the aptly named Giant Steps and the mainstream hit "My Favorite Things," and restlessly moved through various phases, notably what was called “free jazz” and then a spiritual period. He released at least 60 LPs in his lifetime.

Along with packing in as much music as possible, Scheinfeld has gone to great lengths to assemble a stellar cast of witnesses and commentators, who not only offer valuable insights into the subject’s life and work, but also provide solid context concerning historical, racial and cultural currents. The self-appointed star of this realm is Cornel West, whose showboating, over-the-top oratorical style provokes laughs as well as insights.

As time went by, another observer stresses, Coltrane was preoccupied with “seeking of universal truth”; in fellow sax man Wayne Shorter’s view, his colleague was continually outgrowing what he had just done in his persistent exploration of a “spiritual consciousness.” Or, as Carlos Santana eloquently and precisely puts it here, “John Coltrane rearranges jazz’s nuclear structure.”

The abundance of choice performance footage here provides strong evidence for even the greatest claims made by the commentators, while Denzel Washington gets in a few words edgewise as he reads some of the subject’s own writings. The filmmaker has cast his net far and wide to obtain performance and background footage, with evocative and satisfying results.

Coltrane started playing with his first quartet, Steve Kuhn (p), Steve Davis (b) Pete LaRoca (ds), from May 3, 1960. This was Coltrane's first extended gig as leader.
Sonny Rollins, who introduced white girl friend to John Coltrane (according to J.C. Thomas' Chasin' The Trane,) was in the audience on a first evening.
Thelonious Monk (p) quartet, including Steve Lacey (ss) Charlie Rouse (ts) John Ore (b) and Roy Haynes (ds), was on a same bill from June 14 to July 3.
Coltrane had a plenty of time to learn how to play soprano saxophone from Steve Lacy.

戦艦大和の最期

o-YAMATO-facebook
戦艦大和、最期の乗組員の一人
北川 茂(測距儀の伝令兵=主艦橋の最上部に測距儀は在り、真下の指令室の会話、報告、司令がすべて聴こえる位置に居られた。当時21歳、水兵長(黄線3本(陸軍で言う伍長)。帰投後、二等兵曹(下士官)に進級)
1924(大正13)年1月2日、三重県名張市生まれ
(2014年3月2日(日)13:30〜15:00産経新聞社主催、大阪市港区弁天町《ホテル大阪ベイタワー》で北川氏の講演会:当日90歳)
(2015年9月7日(月)12:00〜12:08北川氏の自宅へ電話インタビュー:当日91歳)

戦艦大和へ乗艦から沈没までの詳細ドキュメント聴き取り作成=藤岡靖洋2015年9月9日(水)

昭和20年(1945年)
2月17日
呉〜美田尻沖停泊中の戦艦大和へ乗艦。訓練。
3月25〜30日:休暇
乗組員は交代で休暇のため下船。天皇陛下から「恩賜のタバコ」を拝受し、27,28日ごろ呉の寄宿舎へ帰投。身辺整理のため、恩賜のタバコを含めた品物を郷里(三重県名張(なばり))へ送る。

*昭和20年(1945年)4月1日=アメリカ軍、沖縄本島へ上陸開始

4月5日
15:00〜乗組員3332人の内、任務を離れられる総員(約2500~2600人が)上甲板に集合。伊藤司令長官、有賀艦長より「特別攻撃=特攻」の訓辞を聴く
18:00〜21:00=酒保(しゅぼ=酒宴)、司令長官らが各グループを陣中見舞
23〜24:00前:小用のため下の甲板に下りてゆくと、駆逐艦2隻が左右に接舷し、ホースで重油を抜いている。すなわち、片道の燃料だけにした特攻作戦である。(戦友の大村兵造氏もこれを確認。この後、艦橋最上部の持ち場(測距儀室)で椅子に腰かけたまま仮眠を取るが、眠られず。)


4月6日
 可燃物のハンモックや枕などを甲板上から降ろす
16:00〜大和を旗艦とし、巡洋艦「矢矧(やはぎ)」、駆逐艦「雪風」など第二艦隊14隻が、山口県美田尻沖から出航。先導した対戦掃討隊第三十一戦隊(花月、榧、槇)の3隻は練度未熟とみて、豊後水道で呉に引き返させた。(ここだけWikipediaより抜粋)この時点で11隻。駆逐艦「響」が機雷に触れ戦列離脱。この時点で10隻。
 豊後水道を通過する際に桜が見えて「美しい桜もこれが見納め」との感慨

4月7日
06:00〜枕崎沖でマーチン大艇(PBM)の索敵機に遭遇し、「上海へ移動中」とカモフラージュを行うも、直ぐに進路を上海から沖縄へ訂正(特攻作戦のため沖縄へ)実際、全ての無線は傍受され、翻訳されて、作戦は米軍の知るところとなっていた。
10:00〜米空母から第一次攻撃隊(SB2Cヘルダイバー急降下爆撃機など約100機)発進、大和へ向かう
大和内では、戦闘配置第二から第一へ
11:00〜握り飯2個とたくあん3切れ(最後の食事)
11:07〜大和の電探(レーダー)が大編隊を探知
11:35〜米機大編隊、約70キロに接近
12:15〜総員戦闘配置
12:32〜大和の見張り員が米攻撃機を視認
    有賀幸作艦長が下命「砲撃始め!」
    大和や各艦の高角砲、機銃が火を噴く
 米機の攻撃により、後部艦橋に被弾。後部艦橋要員8名全員死亡の報告を(三重県鵜方出身)助田少尉より受ける。江本分隊長が負傷した助田少尉に「そこで休んでおくように」と言われたので、助田少尉は横になる・・・既に医務室は混乱中でたどり着けない。
Yamato_14-45-4

 さらに攻撃は数派続き、主に左舷に魚雷(北川氏が艦橋最上部から俯瞰した魚雷数は、左舷へ8発と後部へ2発が命中)、爆弾多数を被弾した大和は左へ傾斜。バランスを取るため右バラストタンクに注水。右舷隔壁も順次閉じて注水指令が出されるが、中に人が生存したままの可能性もあり。注水するも功無く、傾斜強まる。傾斜のため主砲が発砲出来ず、主砲塔から「傾斜を戻すよう依頼」が有るも、術無し。
14:05〜巡洋艦「矢矧」沈没
   大和の操舵室に被弾し、舵取り不能。左傾斜のまま左旋回を始める
   第二艦隊司令長官 伊藤整一中将が「作戦中止を下命」
14:20〜総員退艦命令
14:23〜大和沈没

 北川氏は海に転落、大和水没で起こった渦に巻き込まれていったが、大和が水中で大爆発を起したため、海面に押し上げられた。大村兵造(名古屋市出身、当時水兵長)氏と二人で重油にまみれた海面を漂流。駆逐艦「雪風」に救出された。
 日没のため、漂流者を残しながらも、救助は打ち切られた。
 「雪風」は、4月8日佐世保港に帰着。
(参考:駆逐艦「雪風」は、開戦から終戦まで生き残り、「奇跡の駆逐艦」と呼ばれた)

Wikipedia「大和(戦艦)坊ノ岬沖海戦」のくだりにも詳細記述されていますhttps://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E5%A4%A7%E5%92%8C_%28%E6%88%A6%E8%89%A6%29
