Good for Reading Hartshorne
I'm a graduate student in mathematics, and Hartshorne's algebraic geometry book is the Bible of the subject. I'm reading it now, and figured I may as well try to read it while listening to Prof. Hartshorne's CD.

This is not the type of music I'm use to, and it was a bit hard for me to get into. However, I've listened to it a number of times and it's grown on me. So, I can't review it from the point of view of somebody familiar with the style, but I can say if you've never heard this kind of traditional Japanese music, it's worth giving it a try. It might even help you do math!

Floating Bridge of Dreams
“Floating Bridge of Dreams” is a very good live CD of koto and shakuhachi. Almost as good as being at the live performance. You can hear all kinds of background noise, and the recording isn’t the greatest, but the musicians are very good.
