Ok, wait a minute...as promoters we are not allowed to promote our artists
on JPL, so why was this not monitored and deleted, this is blatant marketing
and if this is the way it is going, then should we as promoters be able to
make marketing pitches too.

Read the terms of service....this is not allowed!  You had to agree to them
to sign up for this list.  As a promoter I don't post press release (which
believe me, I have plenty of them) or marketing pitches for airplay (which I
could flood the list with).  THIS IS RIDICULOUS!  Since there is a thread
talking about clean up, I feel this is exactly what should be examined.

"A welcome addition to the jazz scene ... and to one's collection."
JazzReview.com.   From the sell sheet:  "East West's self-titled debut CD is
an energizing listening experience, giving jazz standards get a fresh,
dynamic interpretation when the koto is blended with traditional jazz
instruments -guitar, sax, flute, bass and drums-as well as congas, flamenco.
East West features the unique sounds of the Japanese 13-string koto with an
impressive line-up of talented musicians who bridge East and West on songs
ranging from jazz standards to funk to Japanese melodies and original
