Dear Charles,
Thank you for your suggestion about using the Inter Library Loan (ILL) 
progam. It is certainly a wonderful source of books that are out of print or 
too expensive to consider owning. Occasionally the ILL librarians have been 
able to locate what I want in a nearby state, college, or university library 
which means that I haven't had to wait for a week or more for the volume to 
be mailed. Along those lines, Scarecrow Press and Greenwood Press publish a 
lot of jazz books that are almost all prohibitively costly. Regards.
