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 
their style.
