Long Island (PIX11)-¬†Saxophonist John Coltrane composed the jazz masterpiece “A Love Supreme,” at his home on Long Island.¬†Now his fans are hoping to have the Dix Hills home turned into a museum.

The musician only lived there for three years.

Musicians including Carlos Santana are backing a volunteer effort to turn the dilapidated, four-bedroom house into a museum and learning center.

Santana has already helped raise $30,000 towards the effort to convert the home.

Fans hope to have it open next year on the 50th anniversary of Coltrane’s completion of “A Love Supreme.”

Coltrane died of cancer in 1967 at age 40.
