House Once Owned by John and Alice Coltrane Named National Treasure 

Source: The New York Times.

In 1964, John Coltrane ascended to an upstairs room of a two-story house in Huntington, N.Y., and made compositions that would turn into one of the most revered albums in jazz: “A Love Supreme.” Later that decade, Alice Coltrane recorded her solo debut record, “A Monastic Trio,” in a studio in the basement.

The Coltrane Home, where John Coltrane lived between 1964 and his death in 1967 and Alice Coltrane, his wife, lived until the early ’70s, has been named a “National Treasure” by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The organization will assist with renovation and preservation efforts at the home, which is in disrepair.
