"I Can't Tell You Why" -- Diana Krall.  Vocal jazz.  Like all of her tracks, the sound quality is exceptional.  The bass drum has a nice low "whumpf" and the string bass will sound muddy if your system's not dialed in.
"Human Nature" -- Trijntje Oosterhuis.  Vocal pop/jazz.  A sparse arrangement of the Michael Jackson tune featuring a VERY dynamic acoustic guitar, bass, and a smooth female vocal.  Won't do much for your subs, but will make your mid/highs sing.
"I Will Remember" -- Toto.  80s style pop-rock (from the 90s).  Big, thundering floor tom opens a drum intro with a tight kick drum.  The rest of the song kicks in with a nice balance across the spectrum. 
"No Sanctuary Here" -- Chris Jones.  Southern soul/blues.  Big bass guitar opens this track.  Use this to blow cobwebs out of your subs.  Hah!  Also a more dynamic vocal.
"Temptation" -- Diana Krall.  Vocal jazz.  Opens with a whumpy bass drum and upright bass solo.  Like above, the bass track will sound muddy if your system's not on point.  Always great Diana vocals.
"Tainted Love" -- Stella Starlight Trio feat. Karen Souza.  Lounge jazz.  Intentionally boomy upright bass mixed prominently...  Karen Souza's lush vocals sound impressive.  Use this track to impress someone...  Probably not great to tune in your system given the rather heavy mix on the bass.
"Elephants On Ice Skates" -- Brian Bromberg.  Modern instrumental jazz.  Opens with a 45 second jazz bass solo.  Very articulate sound to the bass, and nicely dynamic.  After the solo, a jazz horn band kicks in.  Very tight, with very harmonic bass guitar (sounds "growly"). 
"It Doesn't Matter" -- Alison Krauss & Union Station.  Modern bluegrass.  Lush production opens up with stereo acoustic guitars and lots of reverb.  Alison's vocals are dynamic, and sound buried at first.  Huge bass kicks in in the last half of the song.

k.d. lang "Miss Chatelaine" from her album Ingenue. When her vocal sounds right the system sounds right.

That is a great album.  Everything on it seems to be perfect.  I have simlar feelings for music by Norah Jones.

I usually play something by Richard Thompson, followed by The Brian Setzer Band or The Reverend Horton Heat.
