Well...maybe I'm lazy at this point in the game but taking several minutes to 
search somewhere to find out how to pronounce the name correctly is an 
unnecessary additional bit of work. Some sort of phonetical breakdown in the 
liners would be considerably easier.

This week's sponsor:  Detroit Jazz Festival's JazzPlanet tv.

In partnership with Show Ads Network, Livestream.com and Detroit Public 
Television, DJF's Jazz Planet stage at Campus Martius will stream via the web 
what is cool about Detroit and in particular, Detroit Jazz Fest, in real time.  
Users around the globe - artists as well as fans - will be able to Skype, tweet 
and Facebook messages to fans, artists and media hosts in Detroit through 
detroitjazzfest.com and DJF social media networks.

Viewers everywhere - from London to Afghanistan - will experience the uniqueness 
of the world's largest free jazz festival, how it blends urban chic and a hip 
and diverse audience with some of the best music on the planet. "It will be fun, 
spontaneous, and capture the unique vibe of the festival that Russ Davis (Voice 
of America) described as "Jazz Disneyland" last year," says Festival Director 
Terri Pontremoli.

The format of the programming allows artists to share some of their special 
projects - not only the performances - but what inspired and what went into 
their works, with hundreds of thousands of people on the web. This broad-ranging 
exposure may result in more performance opportunities and increased cd sales. 
"It not only showcases the greatness of Detroit and the Jazz Fest, but perhaps 
more importantly, nurtures the art form in ways we could only dream of a few 
years ago," added Pontremoli. "Outside of being here, it's the best seat on the 
planet!"

Visit detroitjazzfest.com/jazzplanet for a sneak preview of what to expect Labor 
Day weekend.
