FullAudio, developer of the MusicNow online music service, launched its co-branded digital music channels, which offer self-contained music showcases from top names in music. Kicking off the program are "The Blue Note Channel From MusicNow," which already debuted, and "The Soul of Quincy Jones," which will be available later this year.

On "The Blue Note" channel, listeners will be able to stream, download (in high-quality Windows Media 9 Series format) and burn jazz, hard bop and other styles. Classic Blue Note recording artists include Art Blakey, Dexter Gordon and Sonny Clark; contemporary Blue Note artists include Kurt Elling, Norah Jones and Jason Moran. On "The Soul of Quincy Jones," listeners can tap into Jones' jazz and bossa nova recordings and the entire catalogs of artists who have worked with Jones, including Miles Davis, Frank Sinatra, Count Basie, Aretha Franklin, Paul Simon and Michael Jackson.

"Music is a form of expression, mirroring the freedom and exploration made possible by the Internet," said Jones. "Online music channels like the ones on MusicNow will help artists reach a broader group of music enthusiasts and spur musical innovation."

"This initiative with FullAudio is a brand-new online experience showcasing artists and music from a label known for innovation and artistic excellence," said Jeff Zakin, new-media manager for Blue Note Records.

MusicNow offers 40 channels of music programming and content from all five major labels, as well as independent labels Koch and Sanctuary. For more, visit MusicNow at www.musicnow.com.
