Web-Only Distributed Jazz Recording Artist Gets Grammy

47th Grammy AwardsMaria Schneider, jazz composer, may be the first artist ever to win a Grammy for an album distributed solely on the Web.

Using ArtistShare, an Internet-based music delivery service, Maria actually funded the cost of her original budget before she started recording, an anomaly in recording.

The "Concert in the Garden" CD was limited to 10,000 copies, with 9,000 available for pre-order to participants and 1,000 held in reserve for later auction, through ArtistShare. Maria explained, "This record cost $87,000 to make. I already made my money back."
