John McLaughlin

Dear Ms. Berland and Mr. Petrone,

I have heard about the plans to demolish the ex-residence of John Coltrane.

The impact of John Coltrane’s music has yet to be fully realized. It will take quite a few more years for the world to truly appreciate the stature of this great artist.

In view of this, it is my personal conviction that this small modest house should be conserved in its original state.
