Reader's Notes - The House Where Trane Lived

With budget cuts across the nation on all levels of government, funds for preservation of historic sites are dwindling.  Of particular interest to this blog is the house in Dix Hills, New York, where John Coltrane spent the last -- and perhaps most significant -- years of his life, from 1964 to 1967.  Just today, the house was placed on the list of 11 Most Endangered Historic Places by the National Trust for such concerns.  The Coltrane Home is a work in progress, a structure that needs renovation, expansion, and a sustainable structure of stewardship to preserve and maintain the musical and cultural legacy of John and Alice Coltrane. You can read stories from the New York Times and the Ottawa Citizen about the matter, or visit the website for The Coltrane Home. Pass the word along. As Trane said himself, "One thought can produce a million vibrations."
