Mose Allison, Lou Donaldson, Eddie Palmieri chosen as 2013 NEA Jazz Masters

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Pianist-songwriter Mose Allison, alto saxophonist Lou Donaldson and Latin jazz bandleader Eddie Palmieri have been chosen to receive the nation's highest jazz honour.

The National Endowment for the Arts announced Wednesday their selection as its 2013 Jazz Masters.

The owner of New York's iconic Village Vanguard jazz club, Lorraine Gordon, will receive the Jazz Masters Award for Jazz Advocacy.

Allison has seen his blues-imbued songs covered by rock musicians such as The Who, The Clash and Van Morrison.

Donaldson helped shape the hard bop of the 1950s. His recordings with organist Jimmy Smith led to the groove-filled soul jazz of the '60s and '70s.

Palmieri has mixed jazz with Puerto Rican music. He began his career as a pianist before forming his own innovative Latin jazz orchestras.
