Michael Brecker

The great saxophonist Michael Brecker gave us his support with a letter to the Huntington Town Board.  He was willing to help us, even while enduring his own illness.  We will miss him greatly.

To the Members of the Huntington Town Council:I appeal to you to designate The John Coltrane House a local landmark.

John Coltrane will forever be one of the most revered and inspirational jazz musicians throughout time. He was a courageous musical visionary whose work continues to have an enormous impact on music as well as all the arts. It seems essential to preserve the home of one of America’s greatest artists and cultural icons—a legacy for which Huntington will always be proud.
