In iTunes, go to the File menu, then select "Organize Library" and tick the box next to "Reorganize files in the folder 'music'".

This will work temporarily to accomplish your objectives. However, iTunes on my Mac does a similar thing. It places some of my music in "[location]/iTunes Media" and some of my music in "[location]/iTunes Media/Music". It is highly annoying and AppleCare was unable to resolve it for me. I can organize my library but it will inevitably start separating new imported material out again randomly. – bispymusic Mar 2 '13 at 18:16
