The goal of my research is to illustrate several shared harmonic devices used by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and John Coltrane. I also seek to offer new analyses of these devices as used by John Coltrane in his compositions between1958 and 1961. They are analyzed as singular harmonic devices first codified by Korsakov.
