NOW, THIS IS A HOUSE!

NOW, THIS IS A HOUSE!
 
 
A few weeks ago I took a friend through the John Coltrane House. Like most everyone else, once inside the residence, she was enchanted. It is a very beautiful place. She noted the antique tile floor and walls of the entrance way, glass door knobs on all the doors, kitchen pantry, back staircase, large built in wooden wardrobes in the front bedrooms, ten foot ceilings. The house has an aspect and dignity of an earlier, more formal time and exudes “atmosphere.” There are six bedrooms, four large and two smaller, and two full baths. When we finished the tour, she said, “Now, this is a house!”
 
When preservationists from the Preservation Alliance and the National Park Service tour the building they are equally ecstatic about the interior condition of the house. For them the glass is much more than half full. The house does need work, but all of the building’s original interior features are still here, the same as when John Coltrane lived here and when it was built in 1904.
 
 
The John Coltrane House tangibly locates the Coltrane legacy in the city of Philadelphia. The house is the stuff of legend, where a giant in music took his first giant steps toward completely changing the landscape of contemporary jazz. It is the house where the greatest epiphany and greatest personal victory of Coltrane’s life occurred. In 1957, in this house, Coltrane went through the agony of “cold turkey” freeing himself of heroin addiction. The experience entirely altered his outlook on life. Coltrane always attributed winning his battle with heroin as a divinely aided transcendent experience.   
 
As my friend said after her tour of 1511 North Thirty-third Street:
 
 
                                    NOW, THIS IS A HOUSE!
 
Please help us restore and secure the house that is the central location of the Coltrane legacy.  See the How You Can Help Page and DONATE.

Location, location, location! The John Coltrane House is in a great location. We are across the street from the Gulf Driving Range, the Segley Woods Disc Gulf Club, Smith Playground, and several historic houses in Fairmount Park. We are 4 blocks from the Zoo, a mile or so from the Barnes Art Museum, and a half mile from the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The public bus #32 stops at or near all of these places as well as the John Coltrane House. Please read articles on the rest of our website.

Acquiring good playing golf instructors along with tennis motor coach buses is tough. The the vast majority are ex - college or secondary school players whom look realistically good smacking a soccer ball, but get little true teaching expertise.
