Dick Schory's Music for Bang, Baaroom and Harp was a classic demonstration record that one of the early audiophile magazines recommended. I bought that on an Analogue Productions pressing and I can see why--you can hear the placement (left/right, front to back) of many of the percussion instruments on the stage, which was Chicago's Orchestra Hall. I haven't yet looked for other albums by Schory though.
I uploaded this silly RCA record by Henri René which is in a similar instrumental/lounge style:
It reminds me of something our dads would have used to show off their new console hi-fi. 😁
