      Kia ora all, I hope you are all well and safe in your bubbles. Please find below an invitation to all jazz people from the administrators of Jazz Studies Collaborative:

      We are delighted to invite you to join the email and Facebook discussion groups, Jazz Studies Collaborative. Founded in October 2018 by Lewis Porter, Mark Lomanno, and Alex Rodriguez, and currently led by Lewis, Mark and Kelsey Klotz, the Facebook group has about 475 members and the email group has about 120 members as of April 10, 2020 (this includes about 80 who are in both groups, so really about 40 more members), and they are fast-growing. The groups will also be hosting online panel discussions, book talks and many other useful activities, and we are actively looking for input from members!

      The groups are intended for anyone who is professionally involved with jazz, researching/performing/studying any aspect of jazz–the music, its listeners, its audiences, its history, its recordings, etc. Jazz Studies Collaborative is intended as an inclusive and professional space to discuss everything relating to your jazz activities. Members are an international group of educators/musicians/scholars from a variety of disciplines and personal backgrounds. We are expressly interested in fostering greater communication and collaboration in jazz studies throughout North America and worldwide.
