I assume you're refering to the first SACD release in the series. It's a somewhat eclectic collection of music and spoken word. The music is generally a mix of jazz and classical, nicely done but not really mainstream in appeal. The album is described as having been recorded using the full capabilities of the SACD process (DSD, etc.), and the sound is good. Much, if not all, of the recording took place in the Red Rose Music store in Manhattan, and the recording must provide a good sense of venue acoustics, although I am not familiar with the sound of the location, and without extended listening I cannot attest to the realism of the reproduction. It did sound natural when I had a relatively brief audition of the R3 speakers at this store, listening to material from this disc. I consider the disc one of a number of recent recordings that use state of the art SACD technology, with several cuts that would serve pretty well as demos.
