Cool & Collected
PR reports: Boost your cool factor with the Miles Davis new release, Cool & Collected, in stores NOW!! Celebrating his 80th birthday and his recent induction into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame, this single disc collection is a perfect distillation of Miles Davis and his cool world. For the past half-century, when the subject turns to the simple question, "What defines 'cool'?" there has always been one perfect answer: Miles Davis. Beyond his defiant stance, his piercing glare, his amorous conquests and those one-of-a-kind Issey Miyake fashion statements - there was and always will be the music of Miles Davis. Cool & Collected is the first single CD anthology to zero in on a baker's dozen of the recordings which created the swirling mythos of 'cool' that defines Miles, spanning 1956 to 1984, with a new previously unreleased bonus remix track to close the program. - Click Here for the Full Story

Penelope Jones Debut
audibletreats.com reports: St. Louis emcee Penelope Jones is putting the finishing touches on her debut album. As yet untitled, the album is slated for release on November 7th on Universal Motown Records. Penelope enlisted two high-profile collaborators for the lead singles of the album; Lil Wayne on "Miss Me With That Foolishness" and Mya on the R&B tinged "No Matter What They Say"".

Although only 24 years old, Penelope's debut has been in the works for a long time. Penelope's love for hip-hop began as an adolescent as she performed gospel raps in her church. By her early teens she found herself recording her first demo with The Crew From The Lou, and later opening for the likes of 2Pac and Ice Cube, whenever they came through her town. In 2000, as Nelly was reaching superstardom, Penelope recorded "Jang-A-Lang" with the St. Lunatics and began recording for her own solo debut. [check out "No Matter What They Say" feat. Mya at the full story link... maybe she should adopt the stage name Pe.J? just a suggestion]- Click Here for the Full Story

Disco Biscuits Live CD
PR reports: The Disco Biscuits and Diamond Riggs Records newest live release, Rocket 3, is the entire third set of the Biscuits 2004 New Years Eve performance in New York City. Highly regarded by both the fans and the band alike, this limited-edition three song collection is as much a nod to the past as it is a glimpse into the future. Featuring an awe-inspiring 30 minute version of "Magellan" and a "Frog Legs" that segues nicely into the second half of "Crickets", this CD is most certainly all about the improvisation. As a bonus, the "Hope" encore is included on the CD. These tracks, originally considered for release on the April 2006 double live album The Wind at Four to Fly (Diamond Riggs Records / SCI Fidelity) were moved to the cutting room floor when it was decided that a 70 minute 2 and a 1/2 song CD would not be well received at retail. However, the CD has received new life as a result of the many requests from Disco Biscuits fans that this be released in the crystal clear quality that can be expected of all Diamond Riggs live CD's.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
