Coltrane Down Beat Award

15 posts in this topic

I finally got things working. So, as promised, I can now share a photo of the Coltrane Down Beat award for "A Love Supreme" that I won at the recent jazz auction in New York.

I assure you all it has found a loving home. It's behind glass, so the photo isn't great, butit's about as good as I can get it with my fairly cheap camera.

Beatiful trhing you bought!!

I bought 2 of Trane's music manuscripts, a deed to his house in Philadelphia, and a tux that Dexter Gordon wore for the Oscars ceremony in 1986[?] when he was nominated for his role in Round Midnight. One day I'm planning to donate this stuff to the Smithsonian.

The American Jazz Museum at 18th and Vine in Kansas City would appreciate them a lot more. This museum has a room devoted to items like that, including a letter from John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman's early music book, Benny Goodman's hat and appointment book, etc.

By the '70s they stopped sending them out unless requested. Then they turned out to be made of particle board.
