Dunno know if my Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim CD is of 'audiophile' fidelity, but to my ear it's just wonderful.

In reference to the feel of "the room" in a recording, I think an excellent example of that quality is the "live" side of BB King's album "Live & Well," recorded at The Village Gate in the late '60s. Put on a pair of headphones, and you feel like you're in the club.
