Winners in the musician categories have been announced for the 2013 Jazz Journalists Association Jazz Awards.

Big winners this year include Wayne Shorter, Wadada Leo Smith, Maria Schneider, Ryan Truesdell and more. Perennial award-winner Sonny Rollins was honored with a special “Emeritus Jazz Artist/Beyond Voting” award, its purpose to highlight both Rollins’ enduring achievements and allow other deserving musicians to win awards.
