Two legendary guitarists, namely Laurindo Almeida and Charlie Byrd, plus bass and discreet percussion. Mostly Brazilian music, terrifically arranged by the late Almeida. A vivid recording from Concord Jazz brought to 96/24 DVD with superb results. Click here to read the entire review from UHF.

Perhaps the world's greatest bassist, the late Ray Brown, playing with pianist Gene Harris, whom Brown called one of the greats. That's good enough for us, and besides the proof is right on this 24/96 recording, made from the analog master via a high resolution HDCD encoder. Side 1 can be played on any DVD player, but side 2 has a 24/192 DVD-A version. Click here to read the entire review from UHF
DVD: HRM2011 $24.95
Pianist Monty Alexander, with guitarist Herb Ellis and the legendary bassist Ray Brown. Makes conventional CD music sound as though it's coming to you through a drinking straw. An awesome recording!
DVD: HRM2008 $24.95
Guitarists Herb Ellis and Freddie Green, along with several other musicians, including bassist Ray Brown. So who's Willie? For a hint, check track 2, but we can tell you that rhythm has a lot to do with this fine recording.

Seven, Come Eleven
Herb Ellis and Ray Brown again, but this time with guitarist Joe Pass (he and Ellis alternate playing lead and rhythm), and a third guitarist, Jake Hanna. This is a live recording from the 1974 Concord Jazz Festival, and it brings up a question: how come Concord's live recordings sounded way better than anybody else's?
DVD: HRM2005 $24.95
Herb Ellis, Ray Brown, Joe Pass and others at the Concord Jazz Festival in 1972. How come other companies can't make live recordings sound...well, live?
