JENRing seeks info about your jazz research

I got this via email today, and thought I would help spread the word….

The Jazz Education Network Research Interest Group (JENRing) is embarking on a mapping project to better understand the scope of jazz research worldwide and to facilitate collaboration and coordination among jazz researchers. The goal is to create a central site with resources for publications and personnel as well as communication tools among researchers and practitioners worldwide.  We would like to invite you to get involved in this effort. If you have published any research that may be relevant for the jazz field, we would like to know about it. Please fill out our survey here: and feel free to share the link with fellow jazz researchers.

Please feel free to contact me any time with further suggestions, to join JENRing, or further resources to share.

Thank you
