Centring on an essential relationship between the spontaneous compositions of John Coltrane's late period, this text posits this with his musical evolution from his formative years to the end of his career, his spiritual development, and the socioculture in which he lived and created. In consequence of this interdependence, this book argues that racism in American society had a significant negative impact upon the music of this African-American composer and his musical colleagues.
