CD Baby integrates some MusicBrainz data

Derek Sivers, the owner of CD Baby and a general MusicBrainz fan has recently integrated a sounds-like feature into CD Baby that uses MusicBrainz data. Derek says:

Cooooooooooool!

and thanks to your wonderful aliases:

… will pull up The Notorious B.I.G., etc.

This feature allows CD Baby users to search for CD Baby artists who sound like similar artists that might be cataloged in MusicBrainz. This feature also cross references MusicBrainz artist aliases for an even greater effect: If a CD Baby artist says they sound like “The Notorious B.I.G.” and a customer searches for “biggie”, they will find this artist.

Very nice work Derek!
