Try Dave Carter and Tracy Grammar's recordings. At least some of them are in HDCD and they should be something you would like.

Bunch of Joni Mitchell's recordings were re-released as HDCD -are clearly marked as HDCD.So are a pile of Greatful Dead recordings. Seem to remember Red `House and Rhino had quit a few.Years ago someone published a list of HDCD encoded CD's - there was a bunch of Jazz on that list -might of been on HeadFi.org?
HDCD's are most of the really knock out CD's I own - really sorry this system didn't catch on.
This is one of the reasons I still own a EAD DSP-9000/III.
"Sea Change" by Beck is fantastic. I was not a Beck fan until I listened to this. If you like it, and I predict you will, get Beck's "Mutation" also HDCD encoded.
Another CD I always recommend when HDCD is the topic is "A Nod To Bob" on Red House Records label. This wonderful sounding compilation cd turned me on to several artists.
Many Talking Heads are in HDCD--Stop Making Sense remastered is very good quality
All Grateful Dead have been HDCD since mid 90s, and all new releases are in this format
Some David Grisman and Jerry Garcia releases are HDCD
Dave Brubeck, Time Out remaster is a killer HDCD, but isn't labeled as such! You know when the red light is on.......
