Showing in the context of the release of the album Blue World :
Thanks to NFB.ca online viewing platform, classical compositions by John Coltrane, especially recreated for Le chat dans le sac, are finally released under the title Blue World, with the contest from record company Impulse! affiliate of Universal Music Group/UMe. It is the only known film soundtrack ever recorded by Coltrane. 

The Cat in the Bag depicts the conflict between a young Quebecois couple whose existential angst serves as both backdrop and symbol of Quebecois society. The film addresses Quebeckers’ political coming-of-age, as viewed by a filmmaker enamoured with concepts of the ideal and the absolute. The soundtrack features compositions by jazz legend John Coltrane. (NFB)
