JJA Jazz Awards 2014

(Apologies for the late posting of this …)

Wayne Shorter, Maria Schneider and Joe Lovano were among the major winners in this year’s JJA Jazz Awards, and Herbie Hancock was honored for Lifetime Achievement in Jazz.

Shorter and/or his quartet won in the categories of musician, record (“Without a Net”), and midsize ensemble; while Schneider and/or her orchestra were honored as composer, arranger, and large ensemble. Lovano was named the year’s top tenor saxophonist and multi-reeds player.

The JJA Awards, first presented in 1997, are selected by the voting members of the Jazz Journalists Association, a group that includes professional journalists, industry associates, and supporters.
