Every-time I see something related to Disney, I get so much excited and start hopping around all over like a little kid. My family loves everything about Disney, and I am sure so are you and your children! Whether it be the Disney characters or the Disney music classics, there is always a lot of childhood memories for all of us to relate to. Talking about music, did you know Walt Disney loved Jazz music and in-fact many of the early Disney songs were fashioned as Jazz songs? Even more exciting, Disney has now come up with their new album 'Jazz Loves Disney' featuring old favorite disney tunes from jazz artists themselves. Awesome right? I liked all the songs in this collection and loved many. Each of these songs is unique in its own way, so relaxing and are sure to bring back your golden moments about Disney. I know what are you wondering about. The list of the tracks and the artists that sung those, right? Keep reading to know more on track-list, the artists and how they all put this amazing album together and where you can find these tracks online.

Walt Disney loved jazz and paid great attention to the writing of the music accompanying his heroes adventures. We all have a Walt Disney cartoon tune or melody in mind, reminding us of magic afternoons spent with our parents when we were kids or with our own children now that we are grown-ups. It is a bit of this special feeling and pleasure that artists such as Gregory Porter, Melody Gardot, Stacey Kent, Jamie Cullum and other leading music stars share with us on the new project produced by Jay Newland and arranged and directed by Rob Mounsey.

Words from the Artists:

Stacey Kent:
“I’ve always loved Disney films and Disney music . There’s magic about the fairytale world they conjure up. The song I chose from Cinderella captures that feeling of magical wonderment that I felt as a child.
The song BIBBIDI BOBBIDI BOO, speaks to the child in us all, that still believes - or would like to believe - that we can do magic. As we grow up, we are at the risk of losing that sense of possibility but music has always had the power to transform the world and make it a better place; If that’s not magic, what is?”

“To me Disney represents music. I find music even more beautiful than images. Disney was a genius to create this world of movements with our childhood fairytales.
I sing “Once Upon A Dream” from Sleeping Beauty, in this song I sing to little Laika as I didn’t have access to this world of fairytale as a child”

I absolutely loved listening to these tracks and some of my favorites include "I Wanna Be Like You", "Let It Go" and  "Everybody Wants To Be A Cat". I love these for the lyrics, jazz style and overall feel of the songs. I am sure you can't just pick one from the list. The whole album was a delight and I'm glad I got a chance to listen to these classic jazz twists.  Make sure to check out "Jazz Loves Disney" and let us know which one is your favorite. This is sure to make a wonderful holiday gift for someone who loves Disney just like we do!
