Jazz Loves Disney Album Review
This is a sponsored post from Disney Music and One2One Network. All opinions are my own.
The best things about being a kid where playing in leaf piles, getting pulled around in a sled behind my dad’s riding lawn mower (so safe, I know), and sitting down after washing away the day in the bath and watching a Disney movie. Favorites in my family were The Jungle Book, Pinocchio, and Bambi. It’s hard to pick just a few because I’m pretty sure I’ve seen (and love) them all! To this day, I still know all the words to the songs I used to sing along to.
Your favorite tracks from your childhood and your children’s generation have been brought new life and “adultified” in a new album, Jazz Loves Disney. Did you know that Walt Disney loved jazz music? I can see how a lot of the music in his movies were influenced by jazz. The songs in Disney films are almost just as important as, if not more than, the story line.
1. Jamie Cullum – “Everybody Wants To Be A Cat” – from The Aristocats
2. Melody Gardot – “He’s A Tramp” – from Lady And The Tramp
3. Stacey Kent – “Bibbidi Bobbodo Boo” (French version) – from Cinderella
4. Gregory Porter – “When You Wish Upon A Star” – from Pinocchio
5. China Moses – “Why Don’t You Do Right” – from Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
6. Raphaël Gualazzi – “I Wanna Be Like You” – from The Jungle Book
7. The Rob Mounsey Orchestra – “A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes” – from Cinderella
8. Hugh Coltman – “You’ve Got A Friend In Me” – from Toy Story
9. Anne Sila – “Let It Go” – from Frozen
10. Melody Gardot & Raphaël Gualazzi – “The Bare Necessities” – from The Jungle Book
11. Laika – “Once Upon A Dream” – from Sleeping Beauty
12. Nikki Yanofsky -“Someday My Prince Will Come” – from Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs
13. The Hot Sardines – I Wanna Be Like You (French & English version) – from The Jungle Book (US release only)
My favorite tracks on this album are When You Wish Upon A Star, because it embraces the hope and mystery of childhood, and The Bare Necessities, because you can’t help but bounce in your seat!
