    Agree with Vertigo.

    I discovered Jesse Cook on a sampler CD from Narada called Obsessions - all fantastic stuff, if you like New Age, flamenco-type music.

    I've also got Vertigo and Gravity and I think his music is absolutely fantastic stuff.... How is his other work? And, has he released any newer stuff as well?

    I've got Free Fall and Gravity, and of the two I prefer Free Fall - but it's close! I'll have to check out Vertigo.

    Vertigo, in addition to being a disc of amazing music, is also a very good album for assessing the the strengths & weaknesses of a system.

    A lot of care went into the recording and mastering process giving it a very natural sound. From the pluck and decay of guitar strings to the resonance of the cello or Holly Cole clapping her hands, it all sounds like it should, natural.

    Sound-stage of a system can also be highlighted as there is "air" around the instruments and they remain solidly placed in each track. When demoing equipment I would dismiss anything that did not resolve the multiple guitars as individual instruments or place the cello solidly in the center in track three.( this cello, played by Ofra Harnoy, still gives me shivers at realistic volumes)

    The high quality of the recording also means you can crank it up with the only limiting factor being the system and not the disc.

    A great disc.
