Cook, Dixon & Young CD Debuts on Billboard Jazz Chart

Classic Arts News   Cook, Dixon & Young CD Debuts on Billboard Jazz Chart
Cook, Dixon & Young's Volume One debuted on the Billboard jazz chart this week at number 25.

The album, paradoxically enough, is the second release from the trio of African-American tenors, who sing a mix of jazz, opera, gospel, blues, and Broadway songs. Like Three Mo' Tenors, its predecessor, the album is accompanied by a PBS television special.

Michael Bubl_'s It's Time remained at number one; Paul Anka's Rock Swings dropped from number two to number four, and Chris Botti's When I Fall in Love and Madeleine Peyroux's Careless Love inched back upward to number two and three, respectively.

Big movers include Ren_e Olstead's self-titled album, which jumped from number 18 to number 11 in its 63rd week on the chart.

Pianist Brian Culbertson's It's One Tonight remained atop the contemporary-jazz chart in its second week on the chart. Saxophonist Mike Phillips' Uncommon Denominator, also in its second week, jumped from number eight to number three.
