[Dixielandjazz] CD Baby
lists at jazzpiano.com

There's a website I recently discovered called CD Baby
(http://www.cdbaby.com). It's basically a venue for independent artists and
bands to sell their CDs online. It doesn't cater to any one music genere,
but there is quite a bit of OKOM listed there (click Browse, then Jazz, and
pick your favorite flavor). Musicians may want to look at this as a
no-hassle way to market and sell CDs on the Web, and non-musicians may want
to look at it to get OKOM you can't find on Amazon.com. (I like that CD Baby
has plenty of extended-length samples.)
I just placed my first order from them last night and got a huge kick out of
the shipping confirmation they sent me today. It's pasted below. I like
