Fans Hope Coltrane's Long Island Home Will Become a Museum

Carlos Santana and other musicians are backing an effort to pay tribute to jazz legend John Coltrane by turning his Long Island home into a museum.
 
Coltrane lived in Dix Hills for several years until his death in 1967. The jazz saxophonist wrote the masterpiece "A Love Supreme" in an upstairs bedroom.

  Now volunteers are trying to raise money to renovate the dilapidated four-bedroom brick ranch. They want to create a museum and learning center.
 
Santana, Coltrane's son Ravi Coltrane and others attended a fundraiser for the Coltrane House project last month in New York City.
 
The National Trust for Historic Preservation has named the house one of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places.
