Hancock sees big post-Grammy spike

The applause of the 50th Grammy Awards has lomg died down but the buzz from the stage continues to reverbarate. Sound Scan has this week released its post Grammy sales tally and several of the night's winners scored big in CD outlets. Among them jazz pianist Herbie Hancock who, surprizing to even himself, won the Album of the Year Grammy for River: The Joni Letters.

The second jazz album ever to win this Grammy category saw a 966 percent hike in sales, totaling just over 53,000 copies, and bring its tally to 114,390

The principal of Hancock's work, Joni Mitchell's jazzy pop CD Shine sale went up 100% following its Best Pop Instrumental Performance Grammy for "One Week Last Summer" from her album
