Based on the recommendation of a friend, I bought Hiromi's Brain (Decca) CD (also available as an SACD). She's a young, inventive, dextrous pianist who plays an interesting combination of jazz (good) and new age (not my thing), mostly acoustic but with electronic flourishes (also not particularly my thing). Only the more traditional numbers really grabbed me. But, the recording of her piano is masterful, perhaps the finest example of recorded acoustic piano I've heard in a long while. I've been playing the piano for 30 years, and I'd like to think I can recognize a special piano recording, although I'm not an engineer. I'm curious to hear others' opinions.
