Want to click a selfie, but unable to find a partner or a nice background, John Coltrane’s 8 ft statue, a legendary jazz saxophonist awaits you. The statue honours jazz musician John Coltrane, known internationally for his unique genre and style. To properly recognize such a significant citizen of High Point, the Downtown Improvement Committee, began working on the John Coltrane Statue project in 2004. Thomas Jay Warren was commissioned to sculpt the eight-foot-tall bronze statue of Coltrane. The statue has received rave reviews from all who see it. On September 20, 2006, the statue was dedicated in honour of Coltrane’s 80th birthday.

John Coltrane Statue Reviews & Ratings
This statue and dedication to John Coltrane is really cool in the heart of the city. The description of his short life were nice. It would be nice if there were a local Museum that has more info. We just stumbled on it while walking around.
Very nice people treats me good every visit
I liked this monument. First, it looks life-like, but since John Coltrane was a musician; the accompanying story board of his life, played selected clips of his jazz when activated. Well done High Point!
If you love jazz, this is a must see. So much history in High Point and this rememberence delivers; The plaque plays different Coltrane hits along with background information about his music. We enjoyed listening to Coltrane while reading but be warned, it plays loudly on a quiet night!
This is a historic landmark of unprecedented significance in North Carolina. John Coltrane is one of the greatest musicians who has ever lived. He was born in Hamlet l, North Carolina and grew up in High Point, North Carolina before moving to Philadelphia.This place IS safe. I'm proud that North Carolina has this statue. There are many other Jazz musicians who are deserving of one as so many Jazz musicians (and other musicians), hail from N.C. Also featured at the site, are weatherproof audio examples of his work!!!!!!! Three cheers!!! Three cheers!!!Three cheers for John Coltrane!!!!!!!
