Even better without wearing a flight suit and oxygen mask!
I had a friend who went to sleep listening to hardcore punk. Caused a lot of problems until he found a deaf girl friend.
Ooh, Diana Krall! Good call. Love her, anyway, so she's definitely going on my list. Thanks!
It appears you are open to many genres, so I will recommend one of my go to CDs for sleep time. Hope this helps.
5.0 out of 5 stars Precision in the Execution, Nothing Hurried...It's Simply Beautiful.

Check out Morton Feldman. Those are extremely long and slow compositions. Very good music but you might struggle to stay awake. The scores last for hours and might still be playing when you wake up in the morning.
Don't know if they'll induce or sustain sleep. But these two are very dreamy to me....
Also just found this:
Anything slow tempo'd @ 432Hz or lower. I'm Ok with A=440, just prefer 432 or even lower "Baroque" pitch.
One Stormy Night was always my sleep/fun favorite.
Get an Rx for Alprazolam .5 mg. Take 1/2 tap 1 - 2 hours before bed. At that rate a 30 day Rx of alprazolam will last for 60 days. Good luck.
It’s possibly been mentioned, but there’s a number of cd’s by Steven Halpern that I got from him.
They are excellent sounding and are a wash of soothing sounds.
Someone suggested classical music, and that works for me as well, but I’ll listen to most any kind of music as I’ve been doing that for years.
Steven Halpern has a cd of music tuned to 432hz
I’m a big fan of Ivan Moravec...
The sound of a thunder storm and rain is best I think
Steve Roach -Structures from Silence perhaps the finest ambient music which is gentle enough to calm you into dreamland.
Or... if you really are serious, try Max Richter -Sleep - it's 8 hours of wonderful delight and was actually meant to be playing all night and to lull you to a great sleep, this entire work was broadcast overnight a couple of years ago on the British national station 'Radio 3' and it sure sent me to sleep after a while
I think it was Rubinstein. Great stuff
It may have been said but reading before bed puts me right to sleep. 2 pages and I’m out lol
Also real field recordings of nature helped me. I like the sound of rain in a forest personally. I put it at low enough volume so mind isn’t too distracted by it.
Additionally there are lots of other factors to consider:
How much caffeine you consume and when, sugar intake, diet and what time you eat at night. Alcohol at night can disturb sleep (sugar). Are you on your phone a lot before bed? Do some reading on ways to help sleep. Maybe that will put you to sleep as well
Pat Metheny - One Quiet Night, solo baritone acoustic guitar.
I like to listen to audiobooks to fall asleep to. My favorite story is 2001 A Space Odyssey. The first part, with the monkey men, Moonwalker and the "rock". That part of the story is easy for me to hear over and over.
Since I know the story well it's easy to fall into the flow of it, no need to think or analize, I just drift away.
Lately i've been telling Alexa to play "summer rain"...good sleeping noise.
In the past I really liked falling asleep to Brian Eno's "Ambient 1: Music for Airports".
I love Eno. That album is really amazingly addictive and relaxing.
