“A Love Supreme”…Fans hope Coltrane home can become NY museum

by Frank EltmanAssociated Press Writer DIX HILLS, N.Y. (AP) — In a quiet, tree-lined suburb of New York City sits an unassuming brick ranch house that many musicians consider hallowed ground. This is where saxophonist John Coltrane composed the epic 1964 jazz masterpiece “A Love Supreme,” shortly after moving into the Dix Hills, Long Island, home. Although he only lived there three years — Coltrane died of cancer in 1967 at age 40 — musicians including Carlos Santana and Coltrane’s son Ravi are among those backing a volunteer effort to turn the dilapidated, four-bedroom house into a museum and learning center.
