John Coltrane's masterpiece A Love Supreme recorded in a David Henken Usonian studio commissioned by Rudy van Gelder? Amazing... Van Gelder recorded everyone from Miles and Coltrane to Wes Montgomery.

....go Elvin! Me and my friends were among the few "white boys" at the Revilot Club in Buffalo when he came to town in the late 60's...

He's a force of nature. A tribe of drummers in one man. I saw him with Jimmy Garrison and Steve Grossman (heavily inspired by Coltrane!) at the village vanguard years ago. Since I never saw Trane, it was the closest thing that I have experienced...

I'm guessing the studio is pretty well sound-proofed from outside noises ?

I didn't find a street view of the building. The aerial shot displays some Wrightian tropes, doesn't it . . .

Block construction would reduce outside noise. Wrightian detailing, but probably very few windows. I would assume that the door to the left would be for equipment and instrument load in to the recording room, and the door up the steps to the control room...

I must admit, the somewhat rural feeling of the studio is just not what I imagined while holding the covers and listening to some of those great sides. I always pictured some grungy art deco era Manhattan high rise accessed by an old wooden elevator.
