smzach is right about that "scoop" symbol. As far as "Resolution" from A Love Supreme, that marking is not a very accurate representation of what Coltrane does. It differs from phrase to phrase, but if you listen to the recording(s), you'll hear that Trane is really playing a glissando into the F3 (smoothed out with the lip motion that smz mentioned, combined with some voicing motion in the throat). Sometimes he actually leans into a C3 on the beat and glisses up to the F3.

Listen to the recording, and use that as your "definitive" source. ;)
