John Coltrane and spontaneous composition

Saturnites, I would like to recommend a book regarding John Coltrane's spontaneous composition: Dr. Karlton Hester's Ph.D. thesis: "The melodic and polyrhythmic development of John Coltrane's spontaneous composition in a racist society" I know that a copy exists in the Cornell University Library, but the best way to get a copy is probably to contact Dr. Hester-- his e-mail address is keh6@cornell.edu Hope it proves enlightening, Benjamin Holzman

If it is a doctoral thesis it should be available through University
Microfilms International, Ann Arbor, Michigan. With only a VERY few
exceptions all accepted doctoral theses are made available through this (not
cheap) mechanism. Any academic library's reference department should have
the order forms and a set of _Dissertations Abstracts International_, from
which the order/control number may be found.
