"The point is that if the RIAA were truly interested in promoting good
artists, they'd be doing lots of smaller record contracts with a wide
variety of artists representing a broad cross-section of musical
traditions. But as it is, if it were up to the RIAA we'd be listening
to the music of a small handful of multimillionaire pop stars and the
other 99.9% of musicians would starve."

This is the sophistication of maketing -- it is easier to sell 1 thing
to a million people than it is 100 things to 100,000. Jazz defies the
first model.
