John Coltrane - childhood home. (Not open to public at this time) From WFDD public radio - Jazz legend John Coltrane stands alongside Charlie Parker as the most influential saxophonist of all time. His childhood home is in High Point, North Carolina. It’s a little-known fact, but the community there is working to change that. A historic marker was recently unveiled to the public. When Trane’s masterpiece A Love Supreme was released in 1965, contemporary critics called it the most important album of post-war jazz. It sold a half million copies, and quickly cemented Coltrane’s place in the jazz pantheon. The musical beginnings of the groundbreaking saxophonist took place decades earlier on a quiet little street in east High Point called Underhill. Coltrane's home was built in 1928 by his maternal grandfather, Rev. W.W. Blair, a former slave in North Carolina. DAVID FORD/WFDD Coltrane’s family moved here when he was an infant. He lived in a modest, two-story house from 1928 — the year it was built by his maternal grandfather, the Rev. W. W. Blair — until 1943, shortly after graduating from William Penn High School, just a few blocks away. Hopes for the home include: “A museum that gives us the story—a little more detail—about his childhood here and his family’s background because their family has a lot of rich history going all the way back to slavery,” says Bridges. "So, I think a museum.” It was right here where Coltrane developed his love for music. And where he blossomed as a performer as well, first playing the clarinet at William Penn High School, and later the alto saxophone before later switching to tenor. Preservation Greensboro Executive Director Benjamin Briggs finds architectural treasures here too. Many of the unique architectural elements like pier supports and bookcases with glass doors remain intact from the 1920s. DAVID FORD/WFDD “There’s a wonderful entry area with an original newel post on the stairs,” says Briggs. “Pier supports that are on top of bookcases with glass doors. And there’s an amazing mantle with a mirror over it with beveled glass and original architectural details. And then the entire room has a beadboard ceiling above.” This was a once thriving, predominantly blue-collar neighborhood. Professional white-collar workers lived here too: doctors, lawyers, small business owners, and all of them were African American.
