Masters of Jazz

The big-band leader Toshiko Akiyoshi, the pianist
Ramsey Lewis and the vocalist Jimmy Scott are among
seven musicians who have been designated Jazz Masters,
the nation’s highest jazz honor, by the National
Endowment for the Arts, The Associated Press reported.
The others are the hard-bop trombonist Curtis Fuller;
the tenor saxophonist and influential flutist Frank
Wess; the alto saxophonist Phil Woods, who was honored
in the composer-arranger category; and Dan
Morgenstern, director of the Institute of Jazz Studies
at Rutgers University, who was chosen in the jazz
advocacy category. They are to receive their awards,
including a $25,000 fellowship, at a ceremony and
concert on Jan. 12 in New York.
