Web-only album wins Grammy

Web-only album wins Grammy CNET News.com: Jazz composer Maria Schneider took home a Grammy in february 2005 for her album 'Concert in the Garden,' without selling a single copy in a record store.
Schneider, 44, financed her Grammy-winning album through an Internet-based music delivery service called ArtistShare that opens the financing of production to dedicated fans.
Schneider said she believed she might be the first artist ever to win a Grammy for an album distributed solely on the Web. But she said that other musicians had already approached her about trying similar experiments of their own.
