Only Label With 3 Entries on Billboard Jazz Chart the Past Two Weeks!

What label is the only label on the BILLBOARD JAZZ CHART with 3 entries on both the charts printing 5/21/11 and 5/28/11? It’s the same label that was the only label (the other being Blue Note) that had 2 entries on the chart printing 5/14/11. Namely, Basin Street Records!!!

#9 Rebirth Brass Band, Rebirth of New Orleans
#14 Irvin Mayfield, A Love Letter to New Orleans
#18 Kermit Ruffins, Happy Talk

Plus, the HBO Treme soundtrack is #5 and both Kermit and Rebirth appear on that record.

Own them?
