Introducing "The Bridge" (CFP)

The Bridge is the Journal of Jazz Studies's space for non-traditional forms of jazz scholarship. In the spirit of the 1962 Sonny Rollins album of the same name, we welcome submissions and proposals that explore alternative ways to think about, with, and through jazz, or that address its most urgent issues. We welcome reflections, discussions, provocations, and commemorations, as well as creative and speculative writing, oral histories, photo and sound essays. The Bridge celebrates work that is experiential and experimental, polyrhythmic and polyvocal, collaborative or community focused, interdisciplinary or even undisciplined.

To discuss your submission or submit a proposal, please contact the section editor Dr Lawrence Davies (
