Ravi Coltrane and David Liebman came together Sunday, September 28, at the Half Hollow Hills Community Library in Dix Hills, to talk about John Coltrane’s life, work, and music. After the performance the artists visited the Coltrane Collection computer and enjoyed browsing through the images there with Coltrane collector and scholar Yasuhiro Fujioka. More info and pictures here.
We are so excited here at the Half Hollow Hills Community Library to be part of the effort to restore the last home of the brilliant John Coltrane. John lived here in Dix Hills and it was in this house that he composed “A Love Supreme,” one of his best-known and most beloved works. The first step will be a computer in the library dedicated to a large Coltrane collection of music and pictures, suitable for students, scholars or just the casual user. In the fall, the library will be part of an educational music program that will feature John’s son Ravi, and saxophonists David Liebman and Joe Lovano.
We share Steve’s dream of bringing life back to the house, fill it with children learning about jazz and how a musician lived his life in suburbs, and to inspire visitors with John Coltrane’s deep spirit and soul, which can still be felt when you walk through the rooms.
