In jazz music, the Montgomery-Ward bridge is a standard chord progression often used as the bridge, or 'B section,' of a jazz standard. The progression consists, in its most basic form, of the chords I7 - IV7 - ii7 - V7. Oftentimes, some or all of the dominants are substituted with ii-V progressions or otherwise altered. This is used in such standards as "The Sunny Side of the Street", "When You're Smiling", and "Satin Doll".[1]
