Billboard Jazz Charts - 3 Entries

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

#10 Rebirth Brass Band, Rebirth of New Orleans
#11 Irvin Mayfield, A Love Letter to New Orleans
#16 Kermit Ruffins, Happy Talk

Plus, the HBO Treme soundtrack is #6 and both Kermit and Rebirth appear on that record.

Own them?

UPDATE: For the 3rd week in a row, Basin Street Records has the most projects on the Billboard Jazz chart (printing 5/28/11). #9 Rebirth Brass Band's Rebirth of New Orleans; #14 Irvin Mayfield's Love Letter to New Orleans; and #18 Kermit Ruffins' Happy Talk; plus the Treme soundtrack (which includes Kermit & Rebirth tunes) moves to #5. Own them?
