In the jazz, slow jazz vein, if you have the ability to play SACDs and DVD-As, I recommend any Diana Krall SACD, but When I Look In Your Eyes
is my absolute favorite.
If you like acoustic guitar, Laurence Juber's Guitar Noir DVD-A
is well worth the expensive price. He was lead guitarist with Paul McCartney's Wings. If you have Windows Media Player on your computer, click on this link
and you'll hear a sample of one of the better cuts on the DVD-A. (if this doesn't work, click on "Mosiac" in the song list at the web page.)
If you don't have a Hi Rez player, any Diana Krall CD
will be well mixed and mastered, and will sound good on any system. Live in Paris
, the aforementioned When I Look In Your Eyes
, and The Girl In The Other Room
all sound excellent.
You can get her Live In Paris
concert on DVD with Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound. I love it.
Any of these will show off your system well, but the Hi Rez stuff REALLY shines.
