It's (Still) Time: Michael Bublé Remains Atop Billboard Jazz Chart

Vocalist Michael Bublé's It's Time, the top-selling jazz album of 2005, remained at number one on the Billboard jazz chart this week.

The recently unearthed recording of the Thelonious Monk Quartet with John Coltrane at Carnegie Hall, a staple of end-of-the-year best-of lists, moved up from number three to number two. With the holiday season past, Diana Krall's Christmas Songs dropped from number two to number six.

There were no new entries on the chart.

On the contemporary-jazz chart, Herbie Hancock's Possibilities reclaimed the number-one spot. Another Christmas album, 40 years: A Charlie Brown Christmas, dropped from number one to number six.

The sole new entry on the chart was keyboardist Brian Simpson's It's All Good, which debuted at number 19.
