NEW YORK (AP) — Saxophonist Wayne Shorter and composer-arranger Maria Schneider are each triple winners in the 2014 Jazz Awards presented by the Jazz Journalists Association.

Pianist Herbie Hancock is being honored for Lifetime Achievement in Jazz. As a UNESCO goodwill ambassador, Hancock is organizing International Jazz Day celebrations April 30 in Osaka, Japan.

Shorter has won for musician of the year, best album ("Without A Net") and top midsize ensemble. Schneider tops the balloting in the composer, arranger and large ensemble categories.

Other multiple winners announced by the JJA on Tuesday include newcomer Cecile McLorin Salvant (up-and-coming artist and female singer) and veteran Joe Lovano (multi-reeds and tenor saxophone).
