Are there any others that people would recommend. He tends to like jazz or instrumental type stuff. Any help is appreciated.
These concert blu rays are VERY subjective so take all the suggestions you get from me and others with a grain of salt.........
IMO, the Talking Heads concert film Stop Making Sense (studio mix) is the best audio on BR right now as far as concerts go......simply stunning audio quality.
Close 2nds IMO are John Mayer Where The Light Is, Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds Live at Radio City Music Hall, The Police Certifiable, NIN: Beside You In Time and Chicago with Earth Wind and Fire..........All these sound incredible and beat out Chris Botti IMO.
A few other fantastic sounding discs are Jeff Beck, Jewel, and Return To Forever Returns.
I think all of these are safe buys if he likes the bands to some degree, but others may disagree.
There are other very good ones, but those are the best IMO from a audio quality point of view.
