If you like JS Bach you might want to check out "The Lute Music of J.S. Bach - Vols. 1 & 2" from MA Recordings Very well played and engineered sounds great on ESL.

I've been playing around a lot lately with my "Sonic Holography" now that I've got the Sequels placed correctly, and I'll admit, for about 95% of the music I listen to, my system DOES sound better WITHOUT the Sonic Holograpy processing. Jazz, small combos, classical, even most rock, just sounds cleaner and has better definition in the soundstage running in plain old 2-channel unprocessed, which really comes as no surprise...
But when I put Pink Floyd or Mike Offield in the CD player, it's pretty much mandatory to click on the SH... :P
And now I'm considering going with an ARC preamp (LS-15 or LS-16), so the SH will be completely gone from my system, unless I get an external processor (Carver C-9) or a used Sunfire pre and put in in the loop just for surround duty and injecting the SH processing...
Pure signal is better signal. I know that. But I DO so love my toys....

•• System 91 ••
For me its Madeline Peyroux, Half the Perfect World, and Frank Sinatra Reprise The Very Good Years.
Started off in a mellow mood - Nat King Cole "After Midnight" and then Alan Parson Project "Turn of a Friendly Card",both on vinyl. The Alan Parson then led me to the new Air disc "Pocket Symphony". If you don't have this yet - go buy it. Serious audio demonstration porn on the Martin Logans. The opening track "Space Maker" is the kind of disc that you would throw on if you wanted to sell the speakers. "Left Bank" is also a killer tune.
Hey Lugano, a question for you since you are one of our most prominent European members. Does Air record normally in English or French? I know they are from Versailles, but over here all of their stuff is in English. Just Curious.
Miles Davis / Big Fun 1 & 2
Bjork / Gling glo

After Lugano and Cherian talking about Vas and the singer Azam Ali last week I went out and bought some of her solo work. Right now I have "Elysium for the Brave"on. Great stuff. She's got an amazing voice. And serious HAIR
I have this CD as well. I have been listening to this and the Vas CD nonstop for a week. Her voice is a joy to listen to. Some good bass to be had in the Elysium for the Brave CD. Now that I have rediscovered the bass that I have been missing all this time I am happy again.
