GRAMMY NOMINATIONS INCLUDE SONG FEATURED IN COCA-COLA OLYMPIC PROMOTION

 LOS ANGELES, Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- An instrumental song, available to the public through a recent Coca-Cola Summer Olympic promotional offer, is making music history.
 It is the first time a song of this type has been nominated for a Grammy Award.
 "Twenty-Nine-Five" by Bruce Hornsby and Branford Marsalis has been nominated for the prestigious award in the Pop Instrumental Performance category by the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences.
 The song, commissioned by The Coca-Cola Company, was included among three volumes of music offered last summer to U.S. consumers exclusively through the Coca-Cola Olympic "Medals & Music" promotion.
 More than 2.1 million consumers have received free cassettes or CDs featuring 18 noted contemporary artists through the promotion. Prize certificates were placed at random in specially marked multi-packs of Coca-Cola products, while an under-the-cap message indicated winners on two- and three-liter bottles.
 A second phase of the promotion involved a partnership between Coca- Cola, Warner Music Group and NBC Television. Music videos by the artists featured on the CD/cassette series were combined with televised scenes of Olympic competition and aired each night of NBC's broadcast of the Olympic Summer Games.
 The song by Hornsby and Marsalis of Tonight Show fame aired only one time, on Aug. 6, as the backdrop to a profile on the men's long jump.
 The 35th annual Grammy Awards will be presented in ceremonies Feb. 24 at the Los Angeles Shrine Auditorium.
